Abstract:

Showing students that the act of academic writing is connected to everyday living, [this book], makes invention the primary component of your writing course and helps students re-discover concepts, uncover meaning, and re-think the world around them.-Back cover. Reading throughout this book can be grouped thematically - according to subject matter ... As you explore a particular subject (Education and Learning, For example), you might focus on a particular rhetorical aim (such as Evaluating or Proposing a Solution). Or you might explore a subject area without a particular aim in mind, eventually discovering not only a writing topic but also the rhetorical aim into which it falls. The common subjects are: Education and Learning, Justice and Equality, Environment and Animals, Consumerism and Economy, America, The World, Self, Others (Community), Language and Culture, Gender and Identity, Parents and Family, Popular Culture, Technology.-Using CEL as a thematic reader.
