9780137315147: The Prose reader: Essays for thinking, reading, and writing

Effective writing through critical thinking.

 

Above all others, this rhetorical patterns reader provides a comprehensive grounding in critical thinking as the foundation for close reading and effective writing.  Just as important, by exposing the reader  to interesting and insightful prose by a diversity of top writers, the reader is motivated to respond in writing and discussions.  By thinking, reading, and writing on three increasingly difficult levels - literally, interpretively, and critically - readers can better learn the processes and skills necessary to be successful in all their writing experiences.

From the Publisher:

Based on the assumption that lucid thinking, reading, and writing are so closely interwoven as to be one process, this reader helps students improve their abilities to think, read, and write on progressively more sophisticated levels by providing a collection of 56 provocative, interesting, rhetorically organized essays accompanied by a dynamic, unique pedagogical apparatus that includes clear, well-developed rhetorical introductions, sample student essays, and carefully sequenced prereading and prewriting questions, comprehension questions, and flexible writing assignments. The essays cover a broad range of contemporary topics and portray the universality of human experience as expressed through the viewpoints of men and women, many different ethnic and racial groups, and a variety of ages and social classes.

From the Back Cover:
