Effective writing skills for students of all majors and interests
One of the best-selling interdisciplinary composition texts for over twenty-five years, Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum guides students through the essential college-level writing skills of summary, critique, synthesis, and analysis.
The book is divided into three parts. Part one, âStructures and Strategies,â takes students step-by-step through the process of writing papers based on source material, explaining and demonstrating how summaries, critiques, syntheses, and analyses can be generated from the kinds of readings students will encounter later in the bookâand throughout their academic careers. Part two, âBrief Takes,â bridges the gap between writing instruction and readings with a series of step-by-step exercises. The anthology in part threeÂ provides a wide range of carefully selected, cross-disciplinary readings, including two new chapters on rumor and advertising. Topics are both engaging and teachable, and students will appreciate how these topics correspond to their courses in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
