The Simon & Schuster Short Prose Reader is firmly process-oriented and based on interactive instruction. It combines high-interest reading material with creative, principled pedagogy and traditional concerns about correctness, coherence, and meaning.

Readers will experience success in their writing and will become more involved in learning. Expanded instruction in writing arguments, including an explanation of the elements of good argument and a sample annotated argument that clearly illustrates these elements. Two pro-con debates of three readings each on the death penalty and same-sex marriage. Additional material on revision, including guidelines for soliciting feedback and working in writing groups. 17 new readings, including selections by Bob Greene, Lynn Coady, Wayson Choy, Louis Menand, Dave Barry, Bill Bryson, Charles Krauthammer, and Robert MacNeil, along with 4 new student essays. Exercises in every editing-skill section. Links to Web sites that suggest additional resources for every reading in the book.
