What is included with this book?
"Like all writers, intellectuals need to say something new and say it well. But unlike many other writers, what intellectuals have to say is bound up with the books we are reading . . . and the ideas of the people we are talking with."What are the moves that an academic writer makes? How does writing as an intellectual change the way we work from sources? InRewriting, a textbook for the undergraduate classroom, Joseph Harris draws the college writing student away from static ideas of thesis, support, and structure, and toward a more mature and dynamic understanding. Harris wants college writers to think of intellectual writing as an adaptive and social activity, and he offers them a clear set of strategies--a set of moves--for participating in it.
Joseph Harris directs the independent and multidisciplinary Duke University Writing Program.
