Summary: Showing students that the act of writing is connected to their daily lives, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE emphasizes invention to help students re-discover concepts, uncover meaning, and rethink the world around them. The Fourth Edition offers twelve chapters to help students invent ideas, more than any text on the market. Its 80-plus reading selections by both professional and student writers expose readers to a variety of disciplines. The new edition includes an entire chapter devoted to in
formation literacy, which walks students through a writing project designed to analyze and evaluate a range of sources. Additionally, each writing project chapter includes Reflection activities that ask students to articulate ideas about how their essays work. These prompts get students writing about writing and move them toward self-assessment. A proven text, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE is noted for its fresh voice, colorful use of images, and the soundness and timeliness of its pedagogical foundation. It breaks down the opposition between the personal spaces of everyday life and the critical discourse of academia. The result is a book offering students and teachers pedagogy for making meaning and generating writing, at the intersection of academic and non-academic life. With its emphasis on invention, The COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE gives students excellent preparation for the reading and writing activities they may encounter throughout their college experience--and well beyond.
