Specially emphasizes revision, explaining a range of revision strategies and options. Included is coverage of peer review and collaboration, and contemporary pedagogical techniques often difficult to teach if unassisted by written support. Also incorporated are examples of both professional (2/3 of readings) and student (1/3 of readings) essays, providing useful models and springboards for discussion and analysis. The book expands upon treatment of argumentation by using both professional and student models to illustrate that effective arguments combine elements of rhetorical strategies.
