Synopsis: The Well-Crafted Argument guides students through the process of writing effective argumentative essays across the disciplines. The two-part structure of this rhetoric/reader includes a complete pedagogical apparatus--with coverage of reading, writing, and researching a topic--and an anthology of readings grouped into eight thematic clusters. In-depth instruction, combined with real student writings, engages students and helps them discover their own voices. The Third Edition features a greater emphasis on visual argument, while maintaining the authors' practical, skill-building approach. Each chapter ends with a summary, checklist, and writing projects that allow students to apply what they learn. In addition to guidance on drafting and revising arguments, the authors provide a variety of composition strategies, from free-writing to outlining. Active reading tools, such as note-taking, summary writing, and shared reading, are also encouraged.

A professor of English emeritus at Santa Clara University, White offered courses in first-year composition, argumentation, nature writing, and an introduction to poetry. In 1997 he received the Louis and Dorina Brutocao Award for Teaching Excellence.

In Fall 2007, she received the Dr. David E. Logothetti Teaching Award. Dr. Billings has presented numerous papers at the annual conventions of College Composition and Communication.
