Summary

Viewpoints, a thematically organized reader, offers diverse perspectives on various themes and issues, such as work, media, human behavior, and cultural heritage. With opening chapters of substantial writing and reading instruction and with writing assignments both at the end of each reading and on the Web, Viewpoints, is an ideal reader for honing writing and critical-thinking skills.

Students love Viewpoints, for its helpful guidance, such as pre-reading techniques; methods on evaluating an essay for content, structure, and point-of-view; and advice on choosing good essay topics. The Sixth Edition now includes new opportunities for collaboration.

  • New! Twenty percent of the readings are new to the edition and cover topics such as globalization, the environment, technology, and media.
  • Updated! All features--such as the brainstorming list, cluster map, sample student essay, and MLA documentation guidelines--have been updated for currency.
  • New! New photos with accompanying questions serve as visual writing prompts.
  • An overview of the effect of writers' choices and increased coverage of prewriting offer students even more critical-thinking practice.
