Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


This engaging reader provides brief, readable selections organized by both rhetorical pattern and theme. This accessible compilation begins with a clear, straightforward chapter on reading critically and writing well, and features over 75 readings that illustrate both specific rhetorical patterns and compelling themes. Selections include both annotated student essays in almost every chapter and a rich array of professional writing. Full-color fine art, as well as advertisements and photographs, offer opportunities for writing from visual prompts. Each chapter is enriched by an introduction that provides specific guidelines for understanding the rhetorical pattern illustrated and a detailed checklist for writing in that rhetorical mode. Selections are followed by vocabulary work, detailed questions for reading and analysis, and topics for writing.
