Summary

Writing Analytically is suitable for composition courses and for writing-intensive courses across the curriculum. The authors have included advice for writing analytically using clear language, with concrete discussion of real issues and examples from a variety of disciplines. The book combines a process approach with critical thinking, to emphasize that good thinking promotes good writing (and vice versa) in any discipline. Sections labeled ''Voices from Across the Curriculum'' quote professors from a variety of disciplines on such essential matters as reasoning back to premises, determining what counts as evidence, ways of introducing and concluding, and using the first person I. Five ''Extended Analyses'' appear in three chapters, offering a detailed look at sample papers and analyzing in detail how the papers apply the writing strategies discussed in the book. The text concludes with two chapters on stylistic and grammatical revision that function as a mini-handbook, covering most of the problems students routinely encounter in producing final drafts. Appendix 1, ''Documenting Sources,'' explains and illustrates the APA, MLA, Chicago, and number-reference systems, and also discusses documentation of electronic sources. The Instructor's Manual includes all of the exercises, as well as teaching and writing suggestions.
