Overview

Our times demand that we understand what we read,that we think critically about others' ideas,argue effectively in support of our own,and be able to systematically go through the wealth of available information and ideas,rejecting what is unreliable and synthesizing the useful with what we already know and understand. Read,Reason,Write combines instruction in critical thinking and analysis,argument,and research techniques with a collection of readings appropriate for practicing these necessary skills. In addition to its ample instruction and opportunities for practice,it also shows students the interrelatedness of reading,analytic,argumentative,and research skills.
