This popular rhetoric presents students with eight writing projects of increasing complexity. Projects move from personal, imaginative and concrete writing, to the objective analysis of abstract ideas. Writing styles covered include a research paper, a literary critique, argumentation, personal description, narration and reporting. Features: * Use of personal, informal voice includes little jargon and is a traditional favorite of students. * Introduces students to primary research, practice at identifying sources, interviewing, selecting best materials, and integrating quotations. * Jounral Practice sections, at the end of most chapters, stress journal keeping as a part of the writing process. * Numerous student samples, many with drafts, allow students to see others' solutions to problems. New to this edition: * Expanded selection of readings allows instructors to use the book without a supplement. * New coverage of oral history and student examples explores techniques of primary research and expands on previous discussions. * Style and grammar material is now organized as an appendix at the end of the text. * Cogent advice, applicable for the new or experienced instructor, on planning, grading, using computers, conferencing, and applying writing theory is included in a popular Instructor's Manual.

Review:

"FROM SIGHT TO INSIGHT does a superb job building up compositional skills step by step, from concrete imagery to writing abstract, formal critiques."

"I will probably die with a copy of FROM SIGHT TO INSIGHT in my hand; I cannot imagine switching to another text in the foreseeable future."

". . . I have used FROM SIGHT TO INSIGHT consistently for the eighteen years. The step-by-step approach with several practical exercises for students is one that has appealed to me; several chapters and readings are central to my syllabus. Even as I change my required assignments and redesign my course, FROM SIGHT TO INSIGHT still fits."
