Bill Lewis graduated from the University of Colorado and subsequently pursued his interest in the Russian language at the Defense Language Institute, which led to a 14-year career in the intelligence community. After earning his MA in English from George Mason University, he began his association with the English department at Pueblo Community College, where he has taught developmental and college-level English composition, technical writing, and literature courses for the past 18 years. He has also served as the college's Director of Planning, Accreditation, and Effectiveness, and is currently serving his division as Assessment of Student Learning Coordinator.
"It gives a very thoughtful intro to writing and integrates the various components of the writing process and the writing tasks better than any book I've seen. It could be used for ESL Comp, Basic Writing, or some Comp I."
"...The textbook will be a good learning tool for students given the examples and reading material that is relevant and interesting for students."
"As a former journalist and copywriter, my approach to writing has always been that of process. I like the emphasis of this in your text. I also emphasize to my students that this is a collaborative process and that the stereotype of the solitary writer is just that, a stereotype. Further, the integration of grammar throughout I believe is effective and necessary."
