This book packages together all the coursework required for one complete semester's materials in the introductory college composition course. It is concise but comprehensive, portable and accessible, pragmatic yet pedagogically and theoretically sound. And, it is filled with lessons and activities ready for any instructor to teach tomorrow--or even today, when necessary. This Guidebook is designed to help the part-time college writing instructor survive the first year of teaching an introductory college composition class. Written primarily for adjunct instructors, it could benefit any college professor, teaching assistant, or student taking or preparing to take the first-year writing course. Beyond survival, the Guidebook may even help you, too, to thrive.
