Textbooks Choice


As you read in the syllabus, for two of your three required textbooks this semester, you'll choose from a list of options what you think will best serve you this semester. For this assignment, you'll formalize your choice.

Step 1: Choose

The first step is to read over your choices and make a decision about which books to choose. Remember, you need one style guide and one writing manual. You can see the choices here:

Step 2: Purchase

Once you've chosen your books, purchase them. The easiest way is to order them through Amazon or another online bookseller, getting cheap used copies if possible, and opting for the cheapest shipping, knowing you won't need these books for several weeks.

Step 3: Report

Write a brief, typed report in which you tell me which books you chose and why you chose them. Additionally, for the writing manual, please outline when you intend to do each of the three writing manual reports (Report 1, Report 2, Report 3).
