This cross-curricular composition reader emphasizes writing as thinking. Organized thematically, it includes prose works spanning various ages, cultures and subjects. It encourages students to respond actively to the essays, to formulate their own critical judgements, and to develop in writing their reaction to and perspectives on the thematic concerns of the selections. The essays address current issues such as the death penalty, affirmative action, the role of technology and the impact of media.
