Summary: This cutting-edge rhetoric with readings combines a process-oriented approach to persuasive writing with captivating essays and dynamic visuals. Thoroughly tested in the authors' own classrooms, the engaging readings explore different perspectives on relevant topics such as health, pop culture, and the individual in society, bringing to life issues students grapple with in their lives as citizens, consumers, and family members. The essays--including those written by the
authors' own students--serve as motivational models for student writing. Cartoons, comic strips, and photographs complement the readings and stimulate critical thinking on a wide range of issues.

The rhetoric section of Dynamic Argument presents twelve chapters sequenced to lead students through the writing process. From chapter to chapter, students discover a variety of persuasive writing tools. They then learn to develop their own points of view and to use logic to support them. A complete technology package accompanies the text, making teaching and learning writing even more dynamic.
  • Three chapters on planning, drafting, and revising--along with creative examples and guided practice--focus students on a variety of writing techniques. Students can revisit these chapters while working on writing assignments to reinforce their understanding of key skills.
  • Creative formatting, an abundance of illustrations, and entertaining-yet-instructive cartoons engage students and underscore important points.
  • The authors employ non-technical and user-friendly terms, and examples to present the elements of argumentation and the writing process.
  • Useful teaching aids in the rhetoric section of the text include revision and editing guides, a scoring guide, student-written essays, and writing tips--materials that teachers often have to provide as supplements to a text. The examples and guidelines help students write more effectively at the college level.
  • Compelling visuals and cooperative learning exercises address the needs of both traditional and non-traditional learners.
  • The authors' straightforward writing style and mentoring tone resembles a one-on-one conference between student and instructor, coaching the student through the writing process and the readings.
