THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN.First-year college students are challenged by academic culture and its ways of reading, thinking, and writing that are new to them. Composition instructors are equally challenged by having to introduce, explain, and justify academic methods and conventions to students. From Inquiry to Academic Writing aids both students and teachers with a practical and now widely proven step-by-step approach that effectively demystifies cross-curricular thinking and writing. The book further includes an extensive thematic reader that brings students into interdisciplinary debates that not only bear on their college careers but also reflect larger cultural issues that they will encounter outside the academy. The new edition of From Inquiry to Academic Writing encompasses an even greater range of academic habits and skills, with new readings for both print and digital channels that showcase the very latest interdisciplinary and cultural conversations. And now with the new edition, you can meet students where they are: online. To package LaunchPad Solo free with From Inquiry to Academic Writing, use ISBN 978-1-319-01310-3.
