Summary

A key challenge in the first-year composition course is to engage students as readers and to spark the kind of thoughtful classroom discussion that leads to good writing. As series editor of The Best American Essays, Robert Atwan constantly scours a wide range of print and online periodicals, bringing to America Now an unrivaled awareness of the best writing on today's hottest issues. To make these issues especially relevant for students, Atwan also explores hundreds of campus newspapers on the Internet to find the best student writing on current topics. These models by their peers from across the country show students that they, too, can share ideas through their own discussion and writing. More than any other short essay reader, America Now -- with its thought-provoking readings and extensive apparatus -- inspires discussion and writing by engaging students in the most important issues of their day.
