Grounded in the belief that reading and writing occurs in context, READING OUR WORLD, 2E, helps improve critical reading and writing skills by illustrating the value of contextual awareness. This full-color thematic reader teaches writers to employ audience-centered writing strategies as they explore ongoing conversations about cultural, academic, political, and personal ideologies. A fully integrated library contains more than 300 traditional, image, audio, and video "texts" that teach writers how to recognize, assess, and manage the rhetorical situations of various engaging themes in a range of media and contexts. The second edition also includes new coverage of avoiding plagiarism and working with source material.
