“Students give LaunchPad Solo high praise. If they love it, I love it. Is there anything more gratifying than students who are happy learning grammar?"
--Cameron Bentley, Augusta Technical College

--Ellen Olmstead, Montgomery College

“With the Writing Guides, Rules for Writers presents a concise yet comprehensive strategy for students to apply higher level thinking skills to their writing”

“The sentence guides for academic writers are fantastic. My community college students have so much trouble hearing the academic voice and many of them learn by doing. I would use this material as an exercise when students write their research paper.”
-- Susan Slavicz, Florida State College at Jacksonville

“Rules for Writers has been and continues to be a favorite handbook of mine. Its examples and editing strategies are comprehensive and provide great practice for students.
