9780155035638: Writing About Diversity: An Argument Reader and Guide

Writing about Diversity: An Argument Reader and Guide has the dual purpose of linking instruction in argumentation and critical thinking with readings concerned with timely and controversial topic of multiculturalism. An important premise of this book continues to be that students write more effective argumentative essays when the topic is linked, at leasr initially, with their own experience. This text emphasizes that writing about any issue originates with the self and that it is difficult for students to formulate an opinion and develop a convincing these about a topic unless they first explore their own prespective on it. Although, Writing About Diversity also stress the importance of expanding student understanding by reading material from a variety of information sources -- magazines, journals, books, and material obtained overthe Internet. An entire chapter is devoted to helping students develop effective strategies for reading and evaluating outside sources. With the skills they develop in writing essays about difficult subjects, the students will write more thoughtful, effective essays.
