- Engaging students with the power of language in everyday life. Ideal for the composition classroom, the thematic focus on language in Language Awareness allows students to study compelling topics such as "Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Language" (Chapter 8) and "The Language of Persuasion: Politics and Advertising" (Chapter 12), while fostering an appreciation of the richness and vitality of the English language. Chosen particularly for their insight and appeal to students, the 70 readings -- by well-known writers and language experts -- encourage students to think carefully about the many dimensions of language, culture, and communication, and to use their own language more responsibly and effectively in speech and in writing.- 4 full chapters on writing. Language Awareness offers more writing coverage than any other reader of its kind, and this edition includes four new chapters. Along with three student papers, these 70 pages on the essentials of college writing introduce students to the writing process and cover the types of writing most often assigned to first year college students: writing from experience, writing from reading, and writing from research (with MLA style documentation).- Documents for analysis and writing after every essay and every chapter. Called Language in Action, the documents that appear after every single essay include advertisements, screen-shots of Web pages, cartoons, corporate documents, poems, magazine quizzes, humorous excerpts, and other real-life uses of public language. These documents are surrounded by editorial apparatus that invites students to practice the critical thinking they've just seen modeled in the essays. Every chapter now endswith one of two kinds of casebook: Cases-in-Point are groups of essays tightly focused around a controversial theme in language study, such as who decides what grammar is correct; Language-in-Use are sets of documents for comp

What do we mean when we talk about reading? What does it mean to "teach reading?" What place does reading have in the college writing classroom? Intertexts: Reading Pedagogy in College Writing Classrooms theoretically and practically situates the teaching of reading as a common pedagogical practice in the college writing classroom. As a whole, the book argues for rethinking the separation of reading and writing within the first-year writing classroom--for an expanded notion of reading that is based on finding and creating meaning from a variety of symbolic forms, not just print-based texts but also other forms, such as Web sites and visual images. The chapter authors represent a range of cultural, personal, and rhetorical perspectives, including cultural studies, classical rhetoric, visual rhetoric, electronic literacy, reader response theory, creative writing, and critical theories of literature and literary criticism. This volume, an important contribution to composition studies, is essential reading for researchers, instructors, writing program administrators, and students involved in college writing instruction and literature.

Using the thesis statement as the lens through which students can approach the entire thinking and writing process, TECHNIQUES is divided into three parts that build upon one another: Part I--Thinking Through the Thesis Statement, Part II--Thinking Through Your Writing Assignment, and Part III--Writing Beyond the Composition Classroom. A wide range of journal articles, book excerpts, student essays, paintings, magazine ads, poetry, and short stories make the text accessible to students, and Thinking Through a Reading questions promote active reading and in-class discussion.
