This book utilizes a step-by-step process for simplified writing of academic essays.

It also details the writing process from start to finish, including ways to generate essay ideas. It is full of examples and activities to help the reader learn and progress.

Also included are explanations of 15 different types of essays that are defined and exemplified through 5-paragraph miniessays.

About the Author

After over 40 years of teaching experience, Houghton & Houghton realize students and professionals find the mechanics of following approved writing styles quite confusing. In response, they developed a series of books that simplify the experience of adhering to the rules of the APA, MLA, Turabian, and Gregg writing styles.

Their books clarify important aspects of these writing styles. They are not intended to replace the manuals, but to transform the available information into more user friendly guides, making it easier for students to reference common writing issues. Frequently used aspects of structure, arrangement, citation, and referencing are addressed in simple formats that allow writers to focus on content rather than mechanics and style. Quite simply, the books int he Easy Way Series present the basics in clear, concise, accurate, and easy to navigate packages.

Join the hundreds of thousands of people who have simplified the writing process by using Houghton & Houghton The Easy Way Series books.
