Summary: A diverse and popular selection of readings. Offering a broad spectrum of subjects, styles, and cultural perspectives, the 71 professional readings provide outstanding, engaging models for students' writing. Instructors have a broad range of selections to choose from with a balanced mix of classic writers (such as E. B. White, George Orwell, Maya Angelou, and Martin Luther King Jr.) and newer voices (such as Amy Tan, Richard Rodriguez, Deborah Tannen, and Scott Russe morell Sanders).

Extensive coverage of the writing process. Known for its thorough, accessible writing instruction, Patterns features coverage of the entire writing process. Part One, The Writing Process -- in three short chapters that form a "mini-rhetoric" -- offers students advice on planning, drafting, and revising an essay.

Detailed coverage of the patterns of development. To show students how the patterns can help organize ideas, each chapter in Part 2, "Readings for Writers," offers a comprehensive introduction that defines the chapter's rhetorical pattern, explains the writing strategies associated with it, and analyzes one or more annotated student essays.

More student essays than any competing text. Continuing Kirszner and Mandell's commitment to incorporating abundant examples of student work, Patterns includes 16 sample essays (4 new to this edition) that offers students realistic models for improving their own writing.

Integrated Internet assignments. To help students effectively use the Internet for source material, each of the readings chapters concludes with a guided Internet Assignment that asks students to write an essay using appropriate Internet sources. These assignments have all been revised and updated to reflect the most current trends and sites available on the Web.

Comprehensive coverage of writing research papers. The appendix, "Writing a Research Paper," which includes a new sample student paper using MLA documentation style, takes students through the process of writing a research paper -- from choosing a topic and doing research to avoiding plagiarism and documenting both print and online sources. less
