The case format establishes a narrative arc to each chapter to engage students in the chapter contents. Real student experiences give the text credibility and ground the advice about writing in real contexts. The focus on writing processes, advanced academic genres, and revision make this book an excellent choice for undergraduates and masters students across the disciplines.
