| ||The New McGraw-Hill Handbook|
Today's students don't just write papers; they create multimedia presentations. They don't just do research; they sift through a mountain of online information. They don't just read print texts; they analyze visual information of all kinds. With the new standards being set for today's students, shouldn't today's students have the new standard in college handbooks?
| ||A Writer's Resource|
A new standard for writing, A Writer's Resource, integrates coverage of visual rhetoric and writing for college throughout tabs 2 and 3, with models for the kinds of writing students will be doing in college, as well as guidance on how to understand and use visual information in rhetorical contexts.
| ||Writing Intensive|
Writing Intensive continues to set the bar for contemporary handbooks.
Writing and research have changed dramatically since the first hardcover
handbooks appeared. Today's students don't rely on pens or typewriters:
they use computers to write. They don't just do research: they find
their way through a maze of online information. They don't just read
print: they analyze visuals. They don't just come to class: they
participate in an online learning community. These changes have put new
demands on composition courses. With its focus on writing in today's
environment, integrated coverage of technology and visual rhetoric,
hallmark coverage of writing across the curriculum, and pocket-sized
format Writing Intensive has been designed to provide today's students
with a concise, convenient resource for writing in college and beyond.
