When students routinely use their handbook in the course, they see its value, find that it s a faster way to get answers than search engines like Google, learn to rely on it as a reference, and are more likely to achieve the goals of the course. And when that handbook is "Rules for Writers," you can be sure the advice they find is practical and reliable with help for composing and revising, writing arguments, analyzing texts, using grammar and punctuation correctly, and working with sources. In revising the eighth edition, Nancy Sommers has woven a new emphasis on reading critically throughout the first section of the handbook, introduced advice for analyzing multimodal texts, and added help for public speaking. New practical Writing Guides support students working through college assignments in a variety of genres. And new peer review advice helps students effectively comment on drafts and apply feedback to revisions of their own work. All of these improvements help student writers but they also save "you" time and effort. You can draw from "Rules for Writers" for planning class discussions, conducting in-class workshops, and providing feedback on student work that they can easily apply. "Rules for Writers" even comes with a complete instructor s manual, "Teaching with Hacker Handbooks," with stepped-out lesson plans to customize and sample assignments, syllabi, and rubrics from your peers."
Book was in better condition than described. Grat easy transaction. Thanks.

A Must Have !
My English professor required this book (RULES FOR WRITERS, 5TH EDITION, by Hacker, Diana) alone with the book "SUBJECTS/STRATEGIES 10TH ED, by Eschholz, Paul A.. I must tell you these two books were the best combination of any two English books I've ever used. I excel easily in math; however, I struggle with English and specially writing essays. I honestly believe that it was greatly because of haveing the use of these two books that I recieved my very first A in a college English class. My bottom line on this book (well both of them) is get them...........even if they are not required. The cost for the books at Alibris was the best I found and your wrting and papers will benefit so much more then you could believe.
