What habits are common among good college writers? Good college writers are curious, engaged, reflective, and responsible. They read critically. They write with purpose. They tune into their audience. They collaborate and seek feedback. They know credible evidence makes them credible researchers. They revise. The Bedford Handbook, based on surveys with more than 1,000 first-year college students, fosters these habits and offers more support than ever before for college reading and writing. New writing guides support students as they compose in an ever-wider variety of genres, including multimodal genres. New reading support encourages students to become active readers. Retooled research advice emphasizes inquiry and helps writers cite even the trickiest digital sources confidently and responsibly. Best of all, the Handbook remains a trusted companion for students because it is accessible, comprehensive, and authoritative. Instructors benefit, too: A substantially revised Instructor’s Edition includes Nancy Sommers’s personal mentoring—more than 100 new concrete tips for teaching with the handbook. Finally, integrated digital content is easily assignable and helps students practice and apply the handbook’s lessons.

When it was first published twenty years ago, The Bedford Guide for College Writers brought a lively and innovative new approach to the teaching of writing. Since that time, authors X. J. and Dorothy M. Kennedy have won praise for their friendly tone and their view, apparent on every page of the text, that writing is the "usually surprising, often rewarding art of thinking while working with language." More recently, experienced teacher and writer Marcia F. Muth joined the author team, adding more practical advice to help all students — even those underprepared for college work — become successful academic writers. While retaining the highly praised "Kennedy touch," The Bedford Guide continues to evolve to meet classroom needs. The new edition does even more to build essential academic writing skills, with expanded coverage of audience analysis, source-based writing, argumentation and reasoning, and more.

Unlike the instructor's editions that accompany other handbooks, this one can be held in your hand. This hardcover annotated edition extends the handbook lengthwise, so that it is a convenient size to bring to class. Information for instructors is placed at the bottom of the appropriate page, leaving the text page itself clean and uncluttered. This material is clearly distinguished from the student edition by a rule and by a colored screen. The annotations include the following information: answers to all of the lettered and numbered exercises in a convenient place for classroom use; Scholars on writing-annotated bibliographic references to pertinent scholarly and professional articles and books; and Writers on Writing-quotations from well-known writers on the composing process. In addition, the annotations include cross-references to the handbook's ancillaries, so that instructors can quickly see what additional resources are available in the ancillary package.--page IAE-2
