Andrea Lunsford’s comprehensive advice in The St. Martin’s Handbook, Eighth Edition, supports students as they move from informal, social writing to both effective academic writing and to writing that can change the world.

Based on Andrea’s groundbreaking research on the literacy revolution, this teachable handbook shows students how to reflect on the writing skills they already have and put them to use both in traditional academic work and in multimodal projects like blog posts, websites, and presentations. Integrated advice on U.S. academic genres and language follows best practices for helping students from both international and native-speaker backgrounds improve their understanding of academic English.

Throughout The St. Martin’s Handbook, Andrea Lunsford encourages all of today’s students to learn everything they need to communicate effectively with the diverse people sharing their classrooms, workspaces, and civic lives.

 The St. Martin's Handbook is the most practical handbook I have found and used in my 30+ years of teaching. The best information I can give is that my students keep it.
