From the Instructor:
To save students money, I am teaching WR 222 with no textbook this term. However, I often use Bruce Ballenger's _The Curious Researcher_. The latest edition is the 8th edition, but the older editions should be much cheaper and still useful. If you feel comfortable writing research papers, you may not need a book. However, some students have told me the Ballenger text helped them teach themselves how to write a long paper. If you have not written a research paper in a while or have any anxiety about writing in general, this book could be very helpful. I also have copy on reserve at the Sylvania library, and I know that the Southeast library has a copy, too.
