Summary

Many other first-year composition readers tell students to read texts critically, but this proven classic gives them by far the most help in learning how to do so and then applying the insights they gain to their own writing. Adapting the detailed writing instruction of their best-selling St. Martin's Guide to Writing and adding more readings and reading instruction, Axelrod and Cooper have created a book that bridges the gap between rhetoric and reader and thus provides both structure for students and flexibility for instructors. Chapter One introduces two general approaches to critical reading, showing students how to "read for meaning" and "read like a writer." Each of the following chapters then provides step-by-step guides to applying this knowledge in reading and writing a specific genre, ranging from autobiography to argument.
