Literature: A Portfolio Edition returns the complementary processes of reading and writing about the different literary genres to the center of the classroom. Only through self-conscious attention to the way in which both student writers and literary texts communicate meaning can students become independent critical thinkers. For this reason, Literature aims to incorporate attention to reading and writing economically into all of its features.
