Table of Contents

A revised Introduction to Building an Academic Argument. A newly revised Chapter 5 provides a bridge to help move students from personal and expository to argumentative writing by modeling how to review and critique a variety of positions in preparation for adopting and defending a position of their own. The Guide to Reading shows student Maya Gomez as she works through the stages of analyzing an academic conversation —from summary to an annotated bibliography to a report on an array of positions to an analysis of conflicting positions, all on the same issue. The Guide to Writing provides a host of activities to help students develop their own summary, annotated bibliography, report, or analysis. The argument chapters that follow show students how to apply what they’ve learned by analyzing a variety of claims before thoughtfully defending their own.

New support for reading and composing literacy narratives. A revised chapter 1 challenges students to reflect on their own writing practices by reading literacy narratives and composing one of their own.

An Invitation to Reimagine Writing across Genres.
Each Part 1 chapter invites students to reimagine their writing in a new genre, moving, for example, from remembered event narrative to graphic memoir, from concept analysis to poster presentation, from position argument to Prezi, and more.

Six new student models and 13 compelling new professional readings. The Part One chapters provide a variety of selections by well-known authors and fresh voices, from David Sedaris and Sherry Turkle to Jon Ronson and Jenée Desmond-Harris, as well as new selections by students written while using The St. Martin’s Guide in their composition course.

Now with LaunchPad. LaunchPad, Macmillan's customizable online course space, includes an ebook version of the text and offers an array of new materials including additional student essays, adaptive quizzing, multimedia tutorials, and other resources that you can adapt, assign, and mix with your own.
