Andrea Lunsford gives students credit for all the skills they’ve developed from social and informal writing, and she has thoroughly revised and updated The St. Martin’s Handbook to help students transfer those skills to today’s academic writing and research projects—from traditional print-based genres to Web-based texts and presentations.

Andrea Lunsford’s broad and deep research provides the groundwork for a comprehensive handbook that helps teachers teach and helps students find answers on their own.

A rhetorical approach shows that there is no single "correct" way to write—instead, effective writers make good choices for the situation.

A focus on reflection helps students engage with writing and transfer skills more effectively from one context to another.

Support for teachers includes advice and activities in Teaching with Lunsford Handbooks--plus Andrea’s weekly "Teacher to Teacher" blog and "Multimodal Mondays" assignment ideas on Bedford Bits.
