Helps students read and write critically about contemporary issues
Reading and Writing About Contemporary Issues builds on students’ reading and writing skills through examples for analysis. Each nonfiction reading is organized into units that focus on contemporary issues, and has been chosen to interest and motivate students. Readings are drawn from a variety of sources, such as books, textbooks, periodicals, popular magazines, newspapers, blogs, websites, and Internet sources.
Readings are used as direct learning tools rather than additional examples. The instructional components of each chapter are built around reading samples, and each has been reorganized based on level of difficulty. This versatile presentation adapts easily for a wide range of students.
