Anker’s essential sentence-to-paragraph level writing instruction—brief, affordable, interactive

Real Skills Interactive offers practical coverage of sentence-to-paragraph level writing skills in a brief, interactive, and affordable format. The print component offers the essentials of Anker’s accessible writing instruction along with a number of focused grammar practice activities; additional exercises are available online in LearningCurve, adaptive, game-like quizzing that helps students focus on the material they most need help with.  As with all books in the Anker series, Real Skills Interactive motivates students with its message that writing is an essential and achievable skill and encourages students to connect what they learn with their own goals and with the needs and expectations of the larger world.
"The brief Anker series offers a comprehensive, user-friendly approach to teaching critical thought, grammar and punctuation, the writing process, and rhetorical strategy. It's the only brief textbook series I would consider using in my introductory-level writing classes."
