Effective writing skills for students of all majors and interests – One of the best-selling interdisciplinary composition eBook for over 25 years, Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum 13th edition guides college students through the essential college-level writing skills of summary, critique, synthesis, and analysis.
The ebook “Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum, 13e” is divided into three parts.
Part one, “Structures and Strategies,” takes students step-by-step through the process of writing papers based on source material, explaining and demonstrating how summaries, syntheses, critiques, and analyses can be generated from the kinds of readings students will encounter later in the book–and throughout their academic careers.
Part two, “Brief Takes,” bridges the gap between readings and writing instruction with a series of step-by-step exercises.
The anthology in part three provides a wide range of carefully selected, cross-disciplinary readings, including 2 new chapters on rumor and advertising. Topics are both engaging and teachable, and college students will appreciate how these topics correspond to their courses in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
