Overview

Ways of Reading: An Anthology for Writers / Edition 9

Since its first edition, Ways of Reading has offered a uniquely exciting approach to first-year composition, integrating reading, writing, and critical thinking with a challenging selection of readings and editorial support. By engaging students in conversations with key academic and cultural texts, Ways of Reading helps students develop the intellectual skills necessary for academic work; it also bridges the gap between contemporary critical theory and composition so that instructors can connect their own scholarly work with their teaching. With a mix of shorter, more accessible readings from a broader range of academic disciplines, the eleventh edition offers more flexibility for instructors while continuing to help students become better writers by challenging them to be engaged and critical readers.

The table of contents listed here is actually from the 11th edition, which is not yet available to purchase (as of Sept 2016--I believe it is coming out in November). None of the starred essays are in the 9th edition. That being said, this is an interesting collection of essays, and the supplementary materials are grey.
