By Charles Bazerman
Involved: Writing for College, Writing for Your Self helps students to understand their college experience as a way of advancing their own personal concerns and to draw substance from their reading and writing assignments. By enabling students to understand what it is they are being asked to write—from basic to complex communications—and how they can go about fulfilling those tasks meaningfully and successfully, this book helps students to develop themselves in all the ways the university offers. This edition of the book has been adapted from the print edition, published in 1997 by Houghton Mifflin. Copyrighted materials—primarily images and examples within the text—have been removed from this edition.
