Writing by Choice

Third Edition

Eric Henderson

  • Now more accessible! The third edition has been extensively revised to be easier for university students to read and navigate. Examples have been updated and new readings have been chosen for their greater appeal to students and instructors.
  • Easier to navigate. The text is now clearly divided into three parts: rhetoric with integrated readings, research guide, and handbook. The new design layout and features such as the list of readings and "Signpost" marginal notes will help students to find the specific content they are looking for.
  • Proven critical-thinking approach. Thousands of students have classroom tested Writing by Choice's effective approach to thinking critically about reading and writing.
  • Guidelines balanced with choice. Rather than teach students to write by formula, Writing by Choice outlines approaches and methods while at the same time training students to make choices appropriate to the specific piece they are crafting.
  • Supportive pedagogy. Annotated examples, student essays, marginal notes, and an abundance of in-text exercises help students gain the practical skills they need to succeed in reading and writing at the university level.
  • Canadian. Writing by Choice is an indigenous Canadian text written for Canadian students.
