Kathleen T. McWhorter is professor emerita of humanities and former director of the Learning Skills Center at Niagara County Community College. She has also been on the faculty of the State University College at Buffalo. She is the author of a number of books on reading and writing skills for developmental students, including Expressways: Writing Scenarios, Paragraph and Essay, Academic Reading, Seventh Edition, Efficient and Flexible Reading, Ninth Edition, Active Reading Skills, Third Edition, and Reading Across the Disciplines: College Reading And Beyond, Fifth Edition, as well as a reader for composition classes, Seeing the Pattern: Readings for Successful Writing (Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2006).
Because so many first-year writing students lack the basic skills the course demands, reading specialist McWhorter gives them steady guidance through the challenges they face in academic work. Successful College Writing offers extensive instruction in active and critical reading, practical advice on study and college survival skills, step-by-step strategies for writing and research, detailed coverage of the nine rhetorical patterns of development, and 61 readings that provide strong rhetorical models, as well as an easy-to-use handbook in the complete edition. McWhorter’s unique visual approach to learning uses graphic organizers, revision flowcharts, and other visual tools to help students analyze texts and write their own essays. Her unique attention to varieties of learning styles also helps empower students, allowing them to identify their strengths and learning preferences. Read the preface.
