About David Watkins

See more books from this Author
With each new edition of the "Practical English Handbook, its authors have aimed at retaining the simplicity, directness, and usefulness of the original version while addressing the changing needs of students as they learn and of instructors as they teach. The Eleventh Edition reflects rather dramatic structural changes without sacrificing the venerated practicality of previous editions; it reflects comprehensive reviews of all chapters for contemporary pedagogy, illustration, and technology but always with a sharp eye on the successful elements of other editions. This edition, like all others before it, offers numerous improvements, a partial list of which is included below. We haverearranged major chapters to introduce logical thinking and the essay as a whole first; revised the chapter on writing papers, with new guidelines, illustrations, and exercises; refurbished the chapter on Writing About Literature, with a new introduction and a new section on Writing about a Story; reworked the chapter on research, with a broader view of on-line sources and more comprehensive discussions and illustrations of web-based research; added a new model research paper which is more accessible in content, length, and style; updated and refocused lists of general reference aids and periodical indexes; expanded the treatment of computer-assisted writing; revised the glossary for ease of use and clarity of definition; added new exercises and revised many others, as requested by our users; streamlined, clarified, and freshened other explanation, illustrations, and exercises as necessary.
