Using this unique, portable (5x7.5"), student-friendly text/handbook, first-year composition students can respond to the arguments they read in the book's 44 engaging readings using sentence templates designed for various rhetorical situations, such as introducing an ongoing debate, explaining quotations, and making concessions. Students are encouraged to modify templates like "While some argue that--, others contend that--" for their own purposes. The handbook does not prohibit the use of the first-person in persuasive writing, and many of the templates reflect this. The collected readings touch on higher education, pop culture, fast food, sports, and the American dream, and come from current newspapers, magazines, books, and speeches. Each reading is accompanied by several questions leading students to understand how the author uses the rhetorical moves covered in the book; one question for each reading invites students to write a response. The book is illustrated with b&w photos and cartoons. In addition to many new readings, this second edition includes a chapter on writing in the social sciences. A lively companion blog offers up-to-the-minute articles on issues discussed in the book's readings, from sources such as National Public Radio and print and online magazines. Students and teachers can join the online conversation using the blog's comment feature. Graff is affiliated with the University of Chicago. Annotation ⓒ2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
