Literature Portfolio: An Anthology of Readings1/e: Back Cover Copy

Literature Portfolio: An Anthology of Readings incorporates the best of short fiction, poetry, and drama all into one compact, affordable text. The text is organized around the guiding principle that reading and writing are complementary skills that need to be taught together. In addition, reading and writing coverage are integrated throughout the book to reinforce their importance in every lesson. All of the selections are organized by genre, and then sub-organized into broader chronological periods to provide readers with an understanding of the features that define each genre and to illustrate how they have developed over time.

Literature Portfolio: An Anthology of Readings also includes sections dedicated to reading and writing about literature. These chapters address a wide array of subjects including:

· Discussion of reading and writing about literature in the three genres and across genres including comparison.

· Comprehensive discussions of the writing process, literary research, and documentation.

· Suggestions for thematic combinations, paired readings for select authors, and headnotes that provide literary hooks to help engage students.

· Genre-specific writing problems
