Review:

"Another innovative feature is the authors' genuine effort to integrate reading with writing. Too often, anthologies--whether rhetorical readers or lit-for-comp texts--do little more than pay lip service to the reading-writing connection. In FM, the connection is made explicit by the "Occasions," which walk students step-by-step through a process of discovery, showing them how to use the "mode" in question as a means of moving from invention through analysis toward formulating a thesis and developing a full paper. Very few textbooks provide this kind of detailed, explicit--and imaginative--writing pedagogy."

"The innovative ways in which Hoy and DiYanni have resurrected "conventional" patterns of development and arrangement is important to composition studies-and to students of writing. In the preface to FRAMES OF MIND the editors make clear that they make use of these familiar patterns to add "richness and complexity" to student writing, not to impose rigid, old ways of thinking and writing. And they do this remarkably."
