In 1998 Susan Anker set out to write a book that would help developmental students to see writing as vitally relevant to their lives beyond required English courses. The phenomenal success of Real Writing and testimonials from many adopters confirm this core belief. Students are motivated to learn and improve when they connect the ability to write well with their larger goals — with what they want to do in life and who they want to become. A range of features in the book shows writing to be an essential and achievable skill. In Profiles of Success, former students, now employed in a variety of professions, describe the academic, financial, and personal challenges they have overcome and the importance of good writing skills to their work. Presenting instruction in manageable increments, Real Writing features the "Four Basics" of each type of writing and begins its full grammar coverage with the "Four Most Serious Errors." With abundant and lively practices, assignments, and activities, Real Writing successfully motivates students to improve their writing as no other text does. In this edition Susan Anker continues to find new ways to help students, encouraging them to connect with their college communities and, as always, to connect their writing with their larger goals.

Everyone writes better when writing on something of interest, yet students in a developmental writing class too often feel the course is completely separate from their own lives and goals. Drawing on more than 30 combined years of classroom experience, Kate Mangelsdorf and Evelyn Posey, authors of Discoveries, for the paragraph to essay course, give students concrete strategies for uncovering ideas that matter to them -- and then provide step-by-step guidance for turning these ideas into solid college essays and other writing projects. With a tone that is clear yet supportive, Choices gives students detailed help with the skills needed for successful writing in college, from understanding writing as a process to taking essay exams, from using rhetorical strategies to conducting research. As ESL and developmental reading specialists, the authors are able to provide in-depth help in these crucial areas. Choices not only gives developing students the patient, detailed support they need but also helps them grow as thinkers and writers.

Oft traurig und doch voller Witz und Lebensmut — eine wahre Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden und Überleben Liz Murray, aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Eltern drogensüchtig, mit 15 obdachlos, ohne Schulausbildung. Wie schafft sie den Absprung in ein Leben mit Zukunft? Liz Murray erzählt vom Erwachsenwerden, davon, wie sie ihre Eltern verliert und sich mühevoll ein Harvard-Stipendium erarbeitet, mit einer Sprache, die — anrührend und humorvoll zugleich — alles lebendig werden lässt. Schon als kleines Kind weiß Liz Murray, was es heißt, am Existenzminimum zu leben. Armut und Hunger bestimmen den Alltag ihrer Familie. Doch obwohl die Hippie-Eltern drogenabhängig sind, erleben Liz und ihre Schwester Lisa nicht nur Elend und Leid. Im Gegenteil, ihr Vater ist ein schräger, aber liebevoller Mensch, und er bringt seinen Töchtern bei, nicht auf das Geschwätz der Leute zu hören, sondern der Welt kritisch zu begegnen. Die Momente des Glücks sind dennoch kurz. Mit 15 ist Liz obdachlos, schwänzt die Schule und zieht mit anderen Kindern, die auch nirgends hingehören, durch die Straßen. Erst als ihre Mutter an Aids stirbt, wird Liz klar, dass sie so nicht enden will. Mit großer Willenskraft und einem Durchhaltevermögen, das sie selbst erstaunt, schafft sie mit 19 ihren Highschool-Abschluss und macht ihren Weg bis an die Eliteuniversität Harvard.
