Summary

Critical Thinking, Thoughtful Writing begins with the premise that thinking well involves using language well, and vice versa. This rhetoric with readings--written by critical-thinking scholar John Chaffee and English professors Christine McMahon and Barbara Stout--provides thorough coverage of the writing process, going beyond the traditional rhetoric to teach students how to evaluate sources, images, and arguments. Each chapter focuses on a critical-thinking skill--such as problem solving or analysis of complex issues--that is explored through Thinking-Writing Activities and thematically linked readings. The text helps students develop these skills through carefully sequenced pedagogy and a cross-disciplinary approach that asks them to complete writing assignments and critically evaluate readings drawn from a variety of disciplines. The Fourth Edition features an enhanced discussion of plagiarism with critical-thinking exercises, as well as a special focus on using and documenting Internet sources appropriately. New! In each chapter, "Four Qualities of a Critical Thinker" profiles individuals with open-mindedness, creativity, curiosity, and knowledge. These boxes include writers, explorers, geneticists, and others who demonstrate the four qualities in their work. New! Coverage of "Thinking Critically About Images" is reinforced by full-color inserts in Chapters 4 and 13. These inserts present ads and images that challenge students to evaluate what they see in the media and on the Internet. New! A Hurricane Katrina casebook in Chapter 10 includes essays by four journalists, exploring coverage of the hurricane and how issues of race and class influenced the ways in which stories were told. Two additional essays by photojournalists offer insights into the production of visual evidence. New! A focus on source-based, objective, and investigative writing means that text coverage moves quickly from first-hand, personal writing to more academic rhetor
