For Developmental writing courses There are many different ways in which developing writers learn. Winkler and McCuen-Matherall have created a writing series that takes into account many of the known difficulties that developing writing students have with English language skills and strategies. Writing Talk: Sentences & Paragraphs with Readings, 5/e is the first book in a series of two. This text reaches more students by providing the most varied practice exercises of any writing text. Every unit contains Practice Exercises, Unit Tests, Unit Talk-Write Exercises, Unit Collaborative Assignments, Unit Writing Assignments, and Photo Writing Assignments. These diverse exercises will help students of all types (including visual, audio, and collaborative learners) learn and retain the material.
