Writing Better Essays

by David L. Rogers


Writing Better Essays provides a practical, easy-to-follow approach by which students and inexperienced writers will be able to develop their own reliable process for writing successful argumentative essays.


Based on simple rhetorical premises and a series of key stages for drafting, the book includes many examples of good practice. It explains not only the qualities that distinguish these examples, but also demonstrates methods for emulating these qualities while providing exercises for each chapter. Students and others gain confidence in their writing as they learn to express their ideas more fully through assured paragraphs and full-length essays.
