In the late medieval and early modern periods, Scottish latinity had its distinctive stamp, most intriguingly so in its effects upon the literary vernacular and on themes of national identity. This volume shows how, when viewed through the prism of latinity, Scottish textuality was distinctive and fecund. The flowering of Scottish writing owed itself to a subtle combination of literary praxis, the ideal of eloquentia, and ideological deftness, which enabled writers to service a burgeoning national literary tradition.

Through ideas and practices straight from the classrooms of outstanding teachers, this lively resource illustrates writing that makes an impact on a reader, a writer, or a cause—writing that everyone wants to read. The book is rich with student work that shows how writing can make things happen in the world. The authors provide ready-to-use lessons that include a full range of writing, including poetry, narrative, petitions, proposals, emails, self-reflections, long-term projects, and critical analyses. “Young people yearn to have an impact on the world but often lack the tools to make change. This book demonstrates how shifting the focus and purposes for writing can turn students' frustration with the status quo into action. There’s no time to waste. The need for change—both in school and in society—is urgent.” —Carol Jago, past president, National Council of Teachers of English and associate director, California Reading and Literature Project at UCLA “In true National Writing Project style, Sandy Murphy and Mary Ann Smith take us inside the classrooms of remarkable teachers to see how they create contexts for young writers to pursue writing they care about for purposes that matter. Readers will find lots to take back to their own settings to engage this remarkable generation of young people in our classrooms.” —Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, Executive Director, National Writing Project

What impact do federal courts have on the administrative agencies of the federal government? How do agencies react to the decisions of federal courts? This book answers these questions by examining the responses of federal agencies to the U.S. Courts of Appeals, revealing what happens inside agencies after courts rule against them. Robert J. Hume draws upon dozens of interviews with current and former administrators, taking readers behind the scenes of these organizations to reveal their internal procedures, their attitudes about courts, and their surprising capacity to be influenced by a judge’s choice of words. This fascinating study will be of interest to students and scholars of politics as well as those seeking great understanding of the intricacies of the US political system.

The Writing of Business sees writing as an essential tool for creating personal and organizational strategies for managing an increasingly complex workplace. To help students use their writing to attain these goals, the authors have employed a powerful heuristic: GRACE. GRACE represents five essential kinds of generative questions - Goals, Readers, Arguments, Conventions, and Expression - for analyzing a writing situation and generating specific questions leading to effective written documents. Grounded in rhetoric, The Writing of Business contextualizes traditional sentence and paragraph conventions within the realities of the business world, such as globalization, outsourcing, and constantly changing technology. A business writing text that is reader-friendly in both content and voice, The Writing of Business equips students for a radically changed workplace. This book presents a vision of writing as an activity that is central and essential to doing business in the 21st Century.

Community Matters is a reader/rhetoric that encourages students to think critically about the social, political, and philosophical meanings and importance of community while helping them to build a writer's community within their classroom. Reading selections and writing assignments throughout the book encourage students to consider the local, national, and global communities in which they live, and to respond to and participate in these communities through writing. Student writing is connected with the community through thematic inquiry, reflection, and structured writing activities.
