9780070442498: The Short Prose Reader

Organized rhetorically, this reader opens with chapters which discuss the considerations important for active reading and good writing. It covers all modes including argumentation and persuasion and features five types of integrated questions following each reading. These questions focus on vocabulary, the writer's technique and ideas, guided writing assignments and evaluating the piece. The 3-4 page essays present topics that appeal to a broad audience, with the selections serving as models for writing, and reflecting the length of essays frequently required at college. "Summing Up" questions and writing assignments at the end of each chapter contain comparative perspectives and innovative writing projects. This edition contains 25% new essays, with more selections by multicultural writers.
