9780312434298: Seeing & Writing

Seeing & Writing was the first 4-color composition reader to truly reflect the visual in our culture and in composition. Instructors who have used the past two editions tell us that this textbook helped them envision a new kind of composition class, based on a simple grounding principle: Careful seeing leads to effective writing. Students read this book when they don't have to. They actively and critically see the details of each verbal and visual text, think about its composition and the cultural context within which it operates, and then write thoughtfully and convincingly about it. With a new look, new essays and images, and new notes on teaching from teachers who have used this cutting-edge text, Seeing & Writing 3 continues to lead the way -- as a visual, flexible, and above all, inspiring tool for the composition classroom.
