Summary

Ways of Reading offers a uniquely exciting approach to first-year composition, integrating reading, writing, and critical thinking with an ambitious selection of readings and editorial support. An introduction provides a framework to guide students in reading "with and against the grain." Then Ways of Reading helps students develop the intellectual skills necessary for academic work by engaging them in conversations with key academic and cultural texts. With selections by thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Susan Bordo, and Kwame Anthony Appiah, it also bridges the gap between contemporary critical theory and composition so that instructors can connect their own scholarly work with their teaching. An extensive instructor’s manual provides a wealth of support. Now with exciting new contemporary readings and e-Pages—online essays and videos integrated with the print book—Ways of Reading continues to be the most intellectually thrilling reader available.

David Bartholomae and Anthony Petrosky are both of the University of Pittsburgh. Highly regarded members of the composition community, together they have published Facts, Artifacts, and Counterfacts: Theory and Method for a Reading and Writing Course (1986), The Teaching of Writing: Eighty-fifth Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education (1986), and Ways of Reading: An Anthology for Writers (Bedford/St. Martin's, 2002).
 
Anthony R. Petrosky, the Associate Dean of the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh, holds a joint appointment as a Professor in the School of Education and the English Department.  Along with Stephanie McConachie, he codirects the English Language Arts Disciplinary Literacy Project in the Institute for Learning (IFL) at the Learning Research and Development Center.  As a part of this Institute project, he has worked with professional learning and curriculum development in English for school and district leaders in the public schools of Austin, Dallas, Denver, New York City, Fort Worth, Prince George’s County, and Pittsburgh.  McConachie and Petrosky are the coeditors of Content Matters:  A Disciplinary Literacy Approach to Improving Student Learning, a 2010 collection of reports on the IFL Disciplinary Literacy Project, as well as coauthors of chapters in the book.  Petrosky served on the Reading and English Common Core Standards Project for the Chief States School Officers to develop common core reading and English standards for the US.  In conjunction with this project, he also is a member of the Gates Foundation funded Aspects of Text Complexity Project to develop procedures for assessing text complexity for the common core reading and English standards.  He was the Principal Investigator and Co-Director of the Early Adolescence English Language Arts Assessment Development Lab for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, which developed the first national board certification for English teachers.  He has also served as Co-Director of the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project.  He was a researcher for the MacArthur Foundation funded Higher Literacies Studies, where he was responsible for conducting and writing case studies on literacy efforts in the Denver, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and the Ruleville and Mound Bayou school districts in the Mississippi Delta.  He is past Chair of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Committee on Research and a past elected member of the NCTE Research Foundation.  His first collection of poetry, Jurgis Petraskas, published by Louisiana State University Press (LSU), received the Walt Whitman Award from Philip Levine for the Academy of American Poets and a Notable Book Award from the American Library Association.  Petrosky’s second collection of poetry, Red and Yellow Boat, was published by LSU in 1994, and Crazy Love, his third collection, was published by LSU in the fall of 2003. Along with David Bartholomae, Petrosky is the coauthor and coeditor of four books: Facts, Artifacts, and Counterfacts: Theory and Method for a Reading and Writing Course; The Teaching of Writing; Ways of Reading:  An Anthology for Writers; and History and Ethnography:  Reading and Writing About Others.
