BCcampus has published a new book: Composition and Literature: A Handbook and Anthology
This book was written for provincial level (grade 12 equivalent) Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses in British Columbia, but it could also be used in first year English classes at the university and college level.
The purpose of this book is to help students achieve the learning objectives of their English 12 course. These include how to write intelligently, clearly, and fluently; understand and employ effectively the conventions of various forms of school and college writing assignments; read actively and critically; understand and appreciate diverse and inclusive works of imaginative literature; and think critically, creatively, and reflectively.
This book is divided into two parts. Part I is a Composition Handbook designed to teach students the components of the writing process and the conventions of various forms of school and college writing assignments. Part II is an Anthology of Literature designed to help students read actively, analyze, understand, enjoy, and appreciate stories, poems, and plays by a diverse and inclusive group of exceptional writers.
