A new approach to U.S. academic English integrates the advice all students need. International students and Generation 1.5 English speakers aren’t the only students puzzled by English structures and academic genres. The St. Martin’s Handbook’s advice for multilingual writers comes from expert contributors Paul Kei Matsuda and Christine Tardy, and coverage of these topics is integrated throughout the Eighth Edition, making the information accessible to students from all language and educational backgrounds.

Focused, practical advice helps students make effective rhetorical choices in multimodal projects increasingly in demand in composition courses. Andrea’s conversations with instructors nationwide show that students engage eagerly with the many new kinds of academic projects they are asked to create--from blogs and wikis to presentations and PechaKuchas--but that they still need help composing such work for academic audiences.

Integrated, interactive, assignable digital content in LaunchPad takes advantage of all the Web can do, offering videos of student writers with prompts asking students to reflect on their own writing, texts by student writers in multiple genres with activities for analysis, and LearningCurve adaptive quizzing.

Connect/Create/Reflect assignments in most chapters make the handbook teachable and help students learn to answer their own questions.

Videos teach students what the handbook is for and how to use it.
