    More than ever, students aren’t only students: They are also workers, parents, people with diverse responsibilities for whom “student” is just one of many demanding roles. If what they learn is not directly related to the rest of what they do, it is easily lost among other pressing concerns. When their textbooks fail to make the connection, it is not surprising that writing re¬ mains for students something that is done only in college, or even only in the writing class. The success of Real Writing, along with the many endorsements of this approach that I have received from students and instructors, has confirmed the absolute necessity of making this connection between writing and stu¬ dents’ lives. It remains the primary goal of this new edition of Real Writing. In each chapter, students can see people like themselves—students, workers, and parents—who have struggled with writing, who have wondered why it is important, and who are learning that good writing is not a mysterious, divinely inspired gift but a skill that can be learned by any person who is willing to pay attention and practice. Students also see that competence in any activity, whether it be playing a sport, cooking a meal, replacing a flat tire, or learning a dance, requires close attention to the necessary steps in the process and repeated practice, practice, practice. Throughout Real Writ¬ ing, photos, quotes, profiles, and advice from real students help to empha¬ size both the hard work involved in becoming a competent writer and the absolute necessity of learning this skill. This new edition, as you will see, does even more to inspire students and help them master writing skills.
