Easy navigation, relevant topics, and good beginner's materials. It would've benefited from some visual elements (e.g., diagrams, images, etc.).

I use this site with my developmental writing students, as well as with my
College Composition I students. The content is excellent. There are examples,
notes, and links to other sources. The writing process is explained thoroughly.
It is a very effective tool for distance learning. The information is very
clear and concise.
