Overview

Expand your perceptions and challenge your ideas.

To reflect critically on the events of our times, we benefit from moving beyond our traditional means of obtaining information and exchanging ideas. Global Exchange helps you have a clearer understanding of our international context and of non-U.S. perspectives; encourages you to take discussions outward and to pursue more information and other viewpoints; and allows you to test your own ideas and your ability to communicate across cultures.

Read an Excerpt

Global Exchange: Reading and Writing in a World Context is a first-year composition reader drawing from diverse genres and cultural traditions. This book is designed to help students expand their perspectives from mainstream American viewpoints and media to include perspectives from other regions, traditions, and cultures. The book aims to use the resources of the Internet as well as the texts and images provided in the book to help accomplish these goals. It includes an introductory chapter devoted to instruction in critical reading and writing, seven thematic chapters on international and global issues, and an appendix with source materials and additional Web sites. PEDAGOGICAL APPARATUS

Chapter One gives an overview of reading and writing processes, with attention to issues in international and visual rhetoric. It offers guidance in analyzing texts and images; outlines an Aristotelian model for analyzing texts and images; and provides instruction in prewriting, drafting, and revising, as well as suggestions for integrating outside research into essays. It includes several student essays. This chapter includes a description of community service writing and recommendations for implementing service learning experience into a course with a global theme as well as suggestions for collaboration and peer group work.

In addition to the rhetorical discussions in Chapter One, each of the thematic chapters includes an introduction to the chapter theme. For each selection within the chapter, introductory notes provide context and background; to guide students' exploration of the selections, questions for discussion and suggestions for writing and research followeach text or image. At the end of each chapter, questions on the connections between selections enable students to integrate their knowledge of the texts and images both within that chapter and across chapters. End-of-chapter assignments offer suggestions for more expansive research and writing assignments as well as opportunities for service learning and peer collaboration. Finally, selected Web sites are listed to provide opportunities to explore in depth some of the issues raised in the chapter. As noted in the introduction, this book is designed to engage students in the process of reading and analyzing texts and images from diverse sources, and the Web sites included will assist this process. READINGS AND IMAGES Chapters Two through Eight are thematically oriented chapters that focus on readings and images for study and discussion. Chapter Two, "America: Perspectives at Home and Abroad," moves from images of America early in its political and social history to reflections on its place in the current global context. Chapter Three, "Crossing Cultures," focuses on the international context including but also moving beyond the United States; it emphasizes beliefs and values as well as divergent views of intercultural exchange. Chapter Four, "Issues in Globalization," examines crosscurrents on a global scale, from divergent world views to integrated economies across nations. Chapter Five, "Women and Society", focuses on a particular theme within and across cultures, drawing both on traditional views and on creative and innovative ways in which women contribute to their communities. Chapter Six, "One World: Health and the Environment", examines two concerns that require worldwide cooperation: global health and the global environment. SARS and the prospects of bioterrorism have pushed international cooperation on health issues to a new level with the realization that epidemics are, as one writer notes, "only a plane ride away." Chapter Seven, "Conflict: Images of the other", focuses on the ways in which we create an idea and an image of the enemy; this chapter integrates both primary and secondary sources to help us understand the ways in which enemies and conflicts evolve. Chapter Eight, "A Post-9/11 World", explores the events of 9 11 and their context, as well as related topics such as living with terrorism. An appendix includes resources and background selections to provide historical or cultural context for some of the text's themes and selections.
