For first-year courses in Composition/Rhetoric. This version of Strategies for Successful Writing: A Rhetoric, Research Guide, Reader and Handbook has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* A four-in-one guide for writing in the modes -- a rhetoric, research guide, reader, and handbook At every step of the writing process, Strategies for Successful Writing supports students as they learn to compose in the rhetorical modes. Over 100 short examples demonstrate writing concepts and strategies, so that they can recognize them more easily in the longer reading selections and apply them in their own compositions. Instruction is kept brief and to the point, so that students spend more time writing and less time reading about writing. Perfect for those seeking support for participating in academic discourse for the first time, this four-in-one guide may be the only text students will need for the composition course. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the -increasing mobility of texts, - MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

Negotiating Critical Literacies in Classrooms brings together accounts of educators who have sought to make a difference in the lives of their students through literacy education--from university classrooms in the United States, England, and South Africa, to policy and curriculum development in Singapore and Australia. Each chapter represents the results of extended research on classroom practice. The authors in this collection write as teachers. The literacy classrooms they explore range from the early years of schooling, to primary and secondary education, through to community and university sites. Although the volume is organized around different levels of education, clearly overlapping themes emerge across the chapters, including identity formation and textual practices, politicizing curriculum and textbook production, and changing the power relations in classroom talk around text. An overarching theme of this collection is the belief that there is no one generic, universal critical literacy--in theory or in practice. Rather, the authors reveal how a range of theories can serve as productive starting points for educators working on social justice agendas through the literacy curriculum, and, equally important, how particular critical literacy theories or pedagogies must be worked out in specific locations. In each of these accounts, educators explain how they have taken a body of theory and worked with and on it in classrooms. Their rich portrayals and narratives of classroom realities illustrate the unanticipated effects of pedagogies that emerge in specific contexts. Experiences from the classrooms have led them to revise theories that are central to critical literacy, including constructs such as "empowerment," "resistance," and "multiple readings." This collection documents what occurs when educators confront the difficult ethical and political issues that evolve in particular classroom situations. Negotiating Critical Literacies in Classrooms is appropriate as a text for courses in language and literacy education, and will be of broad interest to educational researchers, practitioners, and theorists. The practical classroom focus makes this book accessible and of interest to a wide range of teachers and an excellent resource for professional development. The international scope will appeal to a global educational readership.

Built on the keystones of rhetoric, Everyone's an Author provides a strong foundation for authoring in the digital age: in college essays, but also on Twitter; in print, but also online; with words, but also with sound, video, and images. It shows students that the rhetorical skills they already use in social media, in their home and religious communities, at work and in other nonacademic contexts are the same ones they'll need to succeed in college. Examples and readings drawn from across multiple media and dealing with topics that matter to students today make this a book that everyone who takes first-year writing will relate to.

In this revised and updated Sixth Edition, Mike Seeds has two goals. First, he wants to show students their place in the universe-not just their location, but their role as planet dwellers in an evolving universe. His second goal is to show them how science works. Essentially, HORIZONS can be understood by a principle, organizing theme: the interplay of evidence and hypothesis. Through a discussion of this interplay, Seeds provides not just a series of facts, but a conceptual framework for understanding the logic of astronomical knowledge. A good example of this is how a survey of the solar system in Chapter 16 leads to theories that explain the origin of the solar system, which is followed by further evidence in Chapters 17 through 20 that helps students test and generalize theories. Students reading HORIZONS will not only learn about the vast reaches of the universe, they will gain new insight into the human quest to understand it. To enhance students' learning experience, each new copy of the book includes two CD-ROMs: THE SKY™ STUDENT EDITION CD-ROM and VOYAGE THROUGH THE SOLAR SYSTEM CD-ROM, creating the most complete media package available for an astronomy text.
