Thorough and practical, Writing from Sources is an indispensable guide to source-based composition. Using a skills-based approach, students begin with the building blocks of research writing—annotating a passage and summarizing a source—then progress through more complex steps, such as synthesizing multiple sources and writing a full-length research essay. Along the way, dozens of readings by professional writers and clear, helpful exercises provide models for practice and proficiency. Known for its clear and helpful advice, Writing from Sources teaches the fundamentals of research writing that students will use throughout their college careers.

Writing from Sources is among the most comprehensive textbooks on source use and integration. It scaffolds the skills so that students have time to assimilate the knowledge and practice it many times before they need to apply it in a formal essay.” –C. Cole Osborne, Guilford Technical Community College
