Best-selling authors and veteran college writing instructors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell believe that students learn to write best when they use their own writing as a starting point. In Writing First with Readings: Paragraphs and Essays, the authors take a simple yet effective approach to helping students improve their writing skills: visual writing prompts open every chapter and get students writing immediately. Then, throughout the chapter, students move between their own writing, writing models and instruction, and workbook-style mastery exercises so that they continually revise, rewrite, and improve their own writing. It is this formula that makes writing instruction meaningful and accessible for students. Thoughtful chapters on academic writing and success, research, and critical reading, along with high-interest essays, round out this new edition, making it the perfect introduction to college writing.

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.

As students move through the book, their skills are reinforced by samples of exemplary writing, recursive writing process instruction, and practice exercises. Students are also encouraged to return to their own writing throughout the process as they learn the value of editing and revising. This new edition incorporates user feedback with the inclusion of TEST, the Kirszner-Mandell model emphasizing the significance of the topic sentence, evidence, summary statement, and transitions in student writing. Foundations First has been redesigned with a clean, bright, and clear layout.
