The Textbook Section for Writing Textbooks

There are several hundred books listed in the textbook section. Select a sequence to review a list of the courses and textbooks for that sequence. You may browse through the entire section if you want to see all our text choices by clicking on "Textbooks", but please be aware that this may take significant time to load and you must be patient.

Text titles in the list display link directly to Amazon's page for the work, or to an alternate source if the item is not available from Amazon. On full screen devices, you can also browse sections or the entire book store in "cover" mode, which will display the textbook cover and range of prices for copies available through Amazon.

During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.

Courses in Writing
Cursus Scriptorum: Writing With Honors • [2019] Bruce McMenomy
  Required The Elements of Style [Edition required: 4]
William Strunk, EB White

We selected this classic handbook of style for its high quality and its wide availability---no copy should cost more than ten dollars, if that, and it should be available in almost any bookstore. Any edition will serve.

  Optional A Writer's Reference [Edition required: 7]
