Joseph Couch, professor of English at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus, has written a recently published book that leads students through the writing process to create well-researched, insightful student essays.

Titled <i>Style and Substance: A Composition Primer</i>, the book fosters critical thinking by integrating reading and writing; demonstrating how the writing process works; presenting select readings that explore such timely topics as globalization, the environment, women's issues, and multicultural issues; and providing sample student essays, vocabulary pointers, and ESL pointers. Its concluding chapter on focused research writing guides students in discovering and using outside sources.

Types of essays examined include description, narration, process, comparison and contrast, cause and effect, and persuasion. Click <a href="" target="_blank">here</a> for more information.

Congratulations to Professor Couch on writing a comprehensive text that will support students in becoming excellent writers and researchers.
