Summary: Viewpoints features diverse, often opposing, perspectives on various themes--from human behavior, cultural heritage, and work to the media--and can be used in both high-level developmental writing courses and low-level freshman composition classes.

Two opening chapters set the stage for subsequent chapters with extensive reading and writing instruction, including Preparing to Read features that cover essential pre-reading techniques and four sets of post-re moreading questions: Understanding the Content, Looking at Structure and Style, Evaluating Author's Viewpoints, and Pursuing Possible Essay Topics. Also, writing assignments appear at the end of each reading to help students articulate their own opinions. On the Net activities give students an opportunity to practice their online research skills.

  • New! New reading selections provide an updated look at globalization and many other timely issues throughout the text.
  • New! On the Net exercises now cover a wider range of topics and also ask students to share their opinions online at specific sites. less
