With carefully crafted instruction, engaging student models, and plentiful practice exercises, this best-selling text continues to provide the most effective paragraph-essay level writing instruction available. EVERGREEN is structured around Susan Fawcett's proven MAP (model-analysis-practice) format--a careful, guiding pedagogy featuring minimal inductive instruction followed by varied practice designed to improve students' confidence and learning outcomes. Known for its superior essay coverage, EVERGREEN demonstrates each of the nine rhetorical patterns with two student sample essays (one in the third person, and one in the first person), and a graphic organizer. New to the Tenth Anniversary Edition is coverage of personal error tracking, including a new chapter, pull-out chart, and integrated exercises for each grammar and spelling chapter to help students identify, track and correct their own errors. The new edition also features an even stronger emphasis on critical thinking, with more exercises on critical thinking and viewing, and many more Teaching Tips designed to prompt critical thinking. Five new readings include selections by Jhumpa Lahiri, Malcolm Gladwell, and Ellen Goodman. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Susan Fawcett is the author of two market-leading college composition textbooks: Evergreen: A Guide to Writing (11th Edition) and Grassroots: The Writer's Workbook (12th Edition). Both texts have won the peer-juried McGuffey Award for sustained excellence, presented by the Text & Academic Authors Association. With degrees in English literature from Ohio University and Columbia University, New York, Ms. Fawcett's honors include a Fulbright Fellowship to Birkbeck College, University of London, and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. She found her calling as a professor of English and Director of the Writing Lab at Bronx Community College, City University of New York, where, dismayed that existing textbooks didn't help her students learn, she began creating her own worksheets that soon became Grassroots. Ms. Fawcett gave up her tenure to write fulltime--textbooks, poetry, and articles on education and health. She has led faculty workshops throughout the United States and in South Africa.Review:
"Evergreen uses high-interest readings and examples while it manages to teach the fundamental writing skills that these at-risk students require."
"My students sold me on the book.... To find a textbook that students feel is worthy of the cost they have to pay for it is the very best endorsement I could give a book."
