Using her unique M-A-P approach (Model-Analysis-Practice), Susan Fawcett's books have guided hundreds of thousands of students through the writing process, from foundations of grammar, mechanics, and spelling through writing clear sentences and well-organized paragraphs. Her inductive approach; plentiful, high-interest student models and practices; and contemporary readings engage and motivate students. This new Eleventh Edition of GRASSROOTS triples the writing coverage-with new Chapters 5 and 6, "Thinking Through the Writing Patterns." Also featured are new critical-thinking and viewing assignments throughout; eight fresh reading selections focused on issues and ideas, not narrative; and a new emphasis on academic and third-person writing.

As a teacher of writing at the high school level, I am always on the lookout for a variety of common sense ways to teach to the many learning styles in my classes. I bought my first "Grassroots' book about 20 years ago. Those books are still valuable and still being used by me and by my students. Since my first purchase, I have continued to go back to Fawcett/Sandburg and now just Fawcett.
There are no gimmicks, no promises here, just the creation of writers whose common sense about teaching writing and writers provides a powerful resource for those who understand the value of the writing process throughout all the aspects of our lives.
