Abstract THE CHAPTERS ON MECHANICS ARE SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE TEXT TO PREVENT BOREDOM AND GIVE STUDENTS SUFFICIENT TIME TO PRACTICE WRITING. EACH OF THESE CHAPTERS INCLUDES A 100-WORD SPELLING LIST BASED ON OBER'S PUBLISHED RESEARCH OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY OCCURRING AS WELL AS THE MOST FREQUENTLY MISSPELLED WORDS IN BUSINESS WRITING. EXTENSIVE EXAMPLES ILLUSTRATE EACH RULE OF GRAMMAR AND END-OF-CHAPTER SUMMARIES PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH A CONVENIENT REVIEW OF THESE RULES. CHECKPOINTS (AT LEAST FOUR PER CHAPTER) TEST STUDENTS' UNDERSTANDING AND MASTERY OF EACH TOPIC. THE SOLUTIONS APPEAR AT THE END OF THE BOOK, ALLOWING STUDENTS TO TRACK THEIR OWN PROGRESS AND IDENTIFY PROBLEM AREAS. INSTRUCTORS HAVE A PARALLEL SET OF CHECKPOINTS WITHOUT THE STUDENT KEY IN THE INSTRUCTOR'S RESOURCE MANUAL. THE MANUAL ALSO PROVIDES CHAPTER OVERVIEWS, LECTURE AND DISCUSSION NOTES, PARALLEL PART TESTS, AND SUGGESTED ANSWERS TO ALL WRITING EXERCISES. FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF WORKSHEETS IN EACH CHAPTER ASK STUDENTS TO MOVE FROM (1) RECALLING IMPORTANT CONCEPTS ON A MULTIPLE-CHOICE TEST, (2) SELECTING (OR INSERTING) THE CORRECT WORD OR STYLE FORMAT THAT COMPLETES A SERIES OF SENTENCES OR PHRASES, TO (3) EDITING A DOCUMENT USING PROOFREADERS' MARKS, AND (4) COMPOSING SENTENCES AND PARAGRAPHS. END-OF-CHAPTER EXERCISES STEADILY PROGRESS FROM SIMPLE TO MORE COMPLEX ACTIVITIES, CONTINUING TO CHALLENGE AND ENGAGE STUDENTS THROUGHOUT THE TEXT.
