Breaking Boundaries offers an important and significant alternative to most other developmental reading/writing books by providing instruction, readings, and activities that more closely resemble “college-level” work. Rather than offering one- to two-paragraph readings and worksheet drills, it features longer readings, more varied readings (multi- cultural, multi-disciplinary, multi-genre), specific strategies for becoming stronger readers, direct instruction in the writing process, and an array of post- reading writing assignments that are not solely based on personal experiences. Writing samples (journals and drafts of essays) guide readers through the steps in the writing process--showing clearly how reading, critical thinking, and writing are intertwined. The readings are drawn from non-fiction and fiction, from classic, modern, and contemporary, and include a variety of multicultural and multigender perspectives representing women, men, African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Euro-Americans. They explore seven themes focusing on issues and controversies of contemporary importance: Equal Education for All: Is Education Fair to Everyone? The Power of Language. Defining Literacy: Whose Agenda Hits the Mark? Reading People's Stories: Why Should We Care? Women's Bodies: Women's Lives. Fiction Writers: Do These Stories Reflect or Define Society and Culture? Ways of Telling: Does Gender Shape Reality? A comprehensive chapter provides hands-on activities demystifies the process of using computers to draft essays. For anyone needing basic instruction or remedial work in anticipation of reading and writing successfully at the baccalaureate level.

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A brief reader for courses in Developmental Writing at the paragraph/essay level or Freshman Composition. Respectfully treating developmental students as intelligent, capable students, Breaking Boundaries, a reader for developing writers, provides instruction, readings, and activities that more closely resemble college-level work-e.g., longer readings, more varied readings (multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, multi-genre), specific strategies for becoming stronger readers, direct instruction in the writingprocess, and an array of post-reading writing assignments that are not based solely on personal experiences. Often, there is a significant gap between the work students are asked to do in Basic Writing and what is required of them in Freshman Composition-and, as a result, their successes in developmental writing may still leave them unprepared for baccalaureate-level work. Breaking Boundaries offers an important and significant alternative to typical developmental texts-those that offer only one- to two-paragraph readings and worksheet drills.
