A Reader for Writers

Second Edition

John Scenters-Zapico

  • Chapter introductions provide a brief overview of the chapter's theme and a sense of how the selections relate to the overarching theme and to each other
  • "Analyze" and "Explore" questions after each reading provide prompts for reflection, classroom discussion, and brief writing assignments
  • "Forging Connections" and "Looking Further" prompts encourage critical thinking by asking students to compare perspectives and strategies among readings, and suggesting writing assignments that engage students with larger conversations in the academy, the community, and the media

New to this Edition:

  • Includes thirty new readings that explore each chapter's question through a diversity of texts, essays, court decisions, visuals, tables, graphs, and poetry, and three new, timely chapters: "Who Decides Gender? Notions of Gender & Identity," "How Are Your Political Views Formed? Political Identity, Alliance, & Exclusion," and "How Can I Become a Better Writer?"
