Overview

This combination rhetoric/anthology shows readers how to read academic volumes effectively and how to use them as sources for papers in a variety of disciplines. Throughout, readers learn how to work individually and collaboratively as they move through the entire process of writing from sources—from reading the original source to planning, drafting and revising essays. The rhetoric section teaches readers the fundamental strategies for all phases of academic writing—critical reading, paraphrasing, summarizing, quoting, organizing, drafting, revising, editing, synthesizing, analyzing, researching, and developing arguments. The anthology section offers engaging reading selections that introduce readers to the issues and the methods of study in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and that serve as idea banks for their writing assignments. For individuals interested in a comprehensive treatment of academic writing.
