Summary"Following on from Writers at Work: The Paragraph and Writers at Work: the Short Composition, Writers at Work: The Essay will teach the basics of academic essay writing to intermediate-level students. In Writers at Work: The Essay, college and university students use the process approach to write different genres of essays common at the post-secondary level, the most important being expository writing, persuasive writing, and timed essay exams. Each chapter uses the same five-step approach to writing that is used in the two lower-level books. In each chapter, students analyze a model essay, noticing key organizational and linguistic features; brainstorm ideas; write multiple drafts; revise their work; engage in peer reviews; and share their finished work. Chapters recycle and build upon previously taught material."--Publisher description
