Writing for a Lifetime Contemporary Readings from Popular Sources by Jane Maher

For courses in Developmental Writing focusing on the paragraph/essay and on writing for the reader.User-friendly yet grounded in theory, this thematic reader gives basic writing students the materials and assignments they need to succeed in college. Its unique approach parallels the life flow from childhood to old age, reflecting the way reading and writing are used in college and in life. Short, helpful examples get students thinking about the requirements of college-level work. Maher bridges the gap between the personal and the academic to make a stronger connection between reading and writing, building students' skills in extrapolation, interpretation, and analysis for college success.
