Essential skills for academic writing!

Focus on Writing is an academic writing program that provides students with essential tools to master not only the key steps in the writing process, but also the grammatical structures, lexical knowledge, and rhetorical modes essential for academic writing.

This five-level series progresses with students as they grow in confidence and ability from sentence level (Book 1) through paragraphs (Books 1–3) and essays (Books 3–5). Each unit leads writers step-by-step through the process of prewriting, writing a first draft, revising, and editing before producing a final draft. Not only do students write an entire paragraph or essay in each unit, they also get plenty of practice at the sentence and word levels.

Highlights

  • Each unit teaches students how to use one or more common organizational structures: narrative, description, opinion, persuasion, compare-contrast, problem-solution, and
  • cause-effect.
  • Revision and editing checklists for each writing assignment help students rewrite and polish their first drafts.
  • Online Teacher’s Manuals contain model lesson plans, unit overviews, timed writing assignments, authentic student models, and answer keys.
Natasha Haugnes

Natasha Haugnes launched her ESL career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco in the late 1980s. She subsequently trained ESL teachers for the Peace Corps in various West African countries while completing graduate school in San Francisco. Natasha currently lives in Oakland, California.

Helen Solorzano

Helen Solorzano lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the house where she grew up, with her husband, their two children, and her mother. She has taught English in the U.S. and in Lima, Peru. She enjoys the creativity involved in writing ESL textbooks and finds the process similar to putting together a giant puzzle. For Helen, NorthStar was an especially challenging project because of the fascinating topics involved. Other interests include technical writing for an international audience. She is a director of The TRAC Foundation (www.tracfoundation.org), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of the TRAC computer programming language, which was developed by her late father.
