Summary: This rhetoric with readings invites students to explore the conversations and literacy practices of various communities and to apply the understandings they gain to writing, reading, and research in academic settings.

Combining the elements of a reader, a rhetoric, research guide, and handbook, Exploring Literacy offers an introduction to the sustained inquiry that underlies most academic work. Each chapter focuses on one primary reading selection and demon

The first section of the text focuses on early literacy experiences in small discourse communities as students read and write memoirs. The second section looks at the ethnographic study of informal communities and how they connect to the wider culture. The third section focuses on the conversations that go on in academic communities--from college classrooms to scholarly journals. A fourth section provides specific strategies for reading, writing, and researching in academic communities.
