THE WELL-CRAFTED ARGUMENT, 6th Edition, guides you through the process of writing effective arguments for every course you take. The authors include coverage of critical reading strategies and the steps of writing, researching, and documenting a topic as well as an anthology of readings grouped into six thematic clusters. Students using this textbook have appreciated the inclusion of real students' essays, which show you that your own voice can come through regardless of the argumentative approach you select. The textbook includes many practical, skill-building tools to guide your progress. Checklists, writing projects, suggestions for further reading, and other features encourage you to apply what you've learned and go beyond the classroom if a topic is of particular interest to you.

"It's also excellent on ethos, pathos, and logos. It does not 'speak down' to students and is an excellent resource for them. It seems very thorough. I've just completed three semesters using it."
"I love the sample essays, the clear explanations of things like fallacies and appeals, and the way the textbook explains 'argument' and 'essay' concepts."
