More so than ever before, in this 6th edition ofWriting in the DisciplinesMary Kennedy, William Kennedy, and Hadley Smith have taken the opportunity to combine all of their own knowledge and experience with the very best source of feedback they could have - the users of their own text. Incorporating the suggestions of students, instructors, and reviewers, the authors have created a text that uses the very best qualities of its previous editions while also striving to break new ground. The rhetoric teaches students 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 offers engaging reading selections that introduce students 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. Throughout, students 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.
