Features Sixty-five readings cover compelling topics such as censorship of high school newspapers, rating movies, analyzing the job market, and whether or not college athletics should be reformed. Writing assignments are based on the readings and ask students to extract meanings and implications as the basis for their essays. Treats writing as a recursive process, engaging students in each step: generating ideas, drafting, revising, and editing. Although chapters are organized generally by rhetorical modes (classification, comparison/contrast, argument, and discussion), the assignments ask students to write for genuine purposes, such as classifying a list of jobs they might be interested in or comparing Asian and American educational methods. Contains selections written by students, promoting student interest and providing realistic expectations for student writing; additional student readings are contained in the Instructor's Manual. Sentence-combining exercises in each chapter and a self-teaching Proofreading Skills Workbook at the end of the main text helps students hone their grammar and proofreading skills with rules, explanations, and exercises on English usage. A full chapter on "Writing the In-Class Essay" gives tips on how to take a written exam.

Students need more than just academic skills for success in college and career, and the lack of an explicit instructional focus on the “soft skills” critical to postsecondary success poses a challenge for many students who enter college, especially the underprepared. Based upon a multi-campus, cross-disciplinary collaboration, this book presents the resulting set of habits-of-mind-based strategies that demonstrably help not only low-income, ESL, and first-generation college students overcome obstacles on the path to degree completion; these strategies equally benefit all students. They promote life-long, integrative learning and foster intellectual qualities such as curiosity, openness, flexibility, engagement, and persistence that are the key to developing internalized and transferrable competencies that are seldom given direct attention in college classrooms. This contributed volume, written with full-time and adjunct faculty in mind, provides the rationale for this pedagogical approach and presents the sequential instructional cycle that begins by identifying students’ assets and progressively focusing on specific habits to develop their capacity to transfer their learning to new tasks and situations. Faculty from both two-year and four-year colleges provide examples of how they implement these practices in English, math, and General Education courses, and demonstrate the applicability of these practices across course types and disciplines. Chapters address key factors of college success, including: * The link between habits of mind and student retention and achievement * Using an assets-based approach to teaching and learning * Supporting and engaging students * Creating inclusive learning communities * Building confidence and self-efficacy * Promoting transfer of learning * Teacher networks and cross-disciplinary collaboration By foregrounding habits of mind as an instructional lens, this book makes a unique contribution to teaching in developmental and general education settings.

While some writing books present isolated examples of critical thinking, Cavina's Critical Thinking and Writing systematically links concepts of critical thinking and writing through all phases of the writing process. By emphasizing those concepts that are of the greatest use to writers and by treating these concepts sequentially, the book maximizes your understanding of how critical thinking can sharpen your writing. Critical Thinking and Writing begins in Part One with a clear outline of the rhetorical/writing process and how it relates to the notion of critical thinking. In Parts Two and Three, you will focus on the specifics of sentence construction and word usage. Part Four includes readings by professional and student writers that offer a multitude of perspectives and topic coverage. Taking a discovery approach, Critical Thinking and Writing encourages you to expand and reinforce your writing skills through many individual and collaborative activities.
