Overview

Each chapter of the reader is structured around a single topic, with articles that reflect different disciplines, viewpoints, and ways of writing. This approach exposes students to a range of models chosen to broaden their disciplinary horizons and sustain their interest. Along with updated classic chapters on Cinderella, Obedience to Authority, Biotechnology, and Business Ethics, the sixth edition includes four new chapters: The Wal-Mart Wars; Left, Right, Center: The American Political Spectrum; Privacy and Technology; and From Fiction to Film: Exploring the Film Adaptation. In addition to the interesting readings in Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum is the unique rhetoric, which provides step-by-step instruction on the skills of summary, critique, and synthesis, as well as to the elements and writing process of the research paper. New to this edition are readings, intended to develop writing skills, are now related to topics in the reader, and an expanded and updated treatment of electronic sources.
