Packed with examples and practical applications for writing in college, community, and career, KEYS FOR WRITERS, 8th edition, builds upon its concise but complete explanations, strong ESL coverage, outstanding student writing samples, and clear content design. All-new Key Examples help students apply the text's signature Critical Thinking Framework to reading, source evaluation, source synthesis, and revision. The new Assignment Guide: Keys to Common Genres gives students brief, step-by-step instructions for fifteen common genres that they might encounter in their academic and professional careers. The text is also thoroughly updated to reflect the 2016 MLA guidelines for documentation and includes enhanced versions of its popular Source Shots. In addition, end-of-part exercises enable students to check their understanding as they progress through the text while a focus on writing in the disciplines helps them carry the framework for critical thinking into a variety of academic contexts.
