17 yo and writing

Any suggestions, a book, a method? We have been working with Writing Strands : *Expository Writing* but while we enjoyed previous editions, we are not thrilled with the exercises in this book.
He will graduate at the end of 2008 and go on to Community College where he has already been taking classes.

I hope you get many responses as we have the same challenges in our homeschool.

Writer's, Inc & Write for College
These are by Great Source education. The first is a general high school book and covers lots, the second is for jr./sr. year, according to the publisher. I love the Writer's, Inc. book as a resource for my 11 year old, too. I purchased them used for a song and have been very pleased with them. They have writing samples and ideas on their site, so you can check those out before buying the books, too.
I like these books too. Our local community college allows writing instructors to chose their own materials for first year composition. Browsing through the bookstore, I saw that several classes were using Write for College as their handbook.
