  • New "Other Voices" boxes. Throughout the book, new "Other Voices" give context and alternate views to the selections in the anthology. These new boxes appear at the end of readings.
  • Expanded focus on critical reading and annotation. The expanded ''Preview'' chapter now includes guidelines on critical reading and annotation. New expanded headnotes give students more contextual information for each reading, so students can think critically about purpose and audience.

These new readings are on such contemporary, high-interest topics as growing up between cultures, high-stakes testing for students, gay marriage, outsourcing, and terrorism.
