New Open Textbook – Writing in College: From Competence to Excellence

We are very happy to announce the addition of a new open textbook to the BC Open Textbook collection from Open SUNY.

Writing in College
Writing for College: From Competence to Excellence is designed for students who have largely mastered the conventions of high-school level writing and are now rising to meet more the advanced expectations of college. Students will find in Writing in College a warm invitation to think of themselves as full, self-motivated members of the academic community. With concise explanations, clear multi-disciplinary examples and empathy for the challenges of student life, this short textbook both explains the purposes behind college-level writing and offers indispensable advice for organization and expression.
