Rhetoric and Composition (PDF)

This book is written as a practical guide for students struggling to bring their writing up to the level expected of them by their professors and instructors. We have avoided complicated "textbook language" and jargon in favor of plain, easily understood prose. We have simply passed on what has worked well for us in our own experiences as college writers and instructors. 80px
