Based on the best practices of one of the most innovative and productive first-year composition programs in the U.S., An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing: A Brief Rhetoric is the ideal way to prepare students no matter which discipline they are entering. Through a series of flexible, transferable frameworks and concrete connections to the disciplines—including unique Insider’s video interviews with scholars and peers—it helps students use a rhetorical lens to adapt to the academic writing tasks of different disciplinary discourse communities.

In addition to this brief, rhetoric-only version, The Insider’s Guide is also available with a thematic reader that foregrounds real readings from the disciplines. Use ISBN 978-1-319-02030-9 for this version without readings.
