    This text is quite different from any other textbook or writing system. First, it is designed for a wide range of writing abilities, from beginning to expert academic writers. ESL, ADL, LD, ADHD, and other writers who are simply unfamiliar with academic writing patterns benefit from sentence-by-sentence templates, prompts, tutorials, and examples. More confident writers may simply use the checklists provided. We have successfully applied the system to all academic writers, from 3rd-graders to dissertation writers. Secondly, the book is designed for a wide range of teaching abilities. It is particularly useful for a beginning writing teacher, though it simplifies the writing process for anyone who wants to implement writing into a curriculum in a controlled and methodical way. Many teachers of other disciplines and curricula find it useful as well.
