Emerging: Contemporary Readings for Writers / Edition 2 available in Paperback
How should money be distributed? What is the future of food? How do we identify and combat stereotyping? Emerging engages students with meaningful contemporary issues so that they can develop the skills they need to address the large questions that will shape their lives. To help students learn to bridge public and academic conversations, Emerging focuses its support on building key academic skills: reading critically, synthesizing, arguing, using evidence, and revising. With a more accessible range of readings, the second edition includes substantial and shorter selections, as well as visuals and online multimodal texts that will challenge students' assumptions and spark considered writing. The print text is now integrated with e-Pages for Emerging, designed to take advantage of what the Web can do.
