by Michael Rectenwald and Lisa Carl




Overview -

Academic Writing, Real World Topics fills a void in the writing-across-the-curriculum textbook market. It draws together articles and essays of actual academic prose as opposed to journalism; it arranges material by topic instead of by discipline or academic division; and it approaches topics from multiple disciplinary and critical perspectives.With extensive introductions, rhetorical instruction, and suggested additional resources accompanying each chapter, Academic Writing, Real World Topics introduces students to the kinds of research and writing that they will be expected to undertake throughout their college careers and beyond. This concise edition provides all the features of the complete edition in a more compact and affordable format.

Key Features:

  • - Contemporary, cutting-edge readings on relevant topics
    - Extensive cross-referencing between the rhetoric and the reader to help students make connections
    - Full-length essays rather than excerpts
    - Chapter introductions that put readings in context and promote interdisciplinary connections
    - Sample student essays to demonstrate student contribution
    - "As You Read" guides to each chapter that encourage readers to locate points of contact among readings
    - Questions after each reading that enable comprehension, help students identify rhetorical moves, and prompt oral and written response
