Book Description

864 pages; ISBN: 0312676840; published in 2011 by Bedford/St. Martin’s in Boston and New York; Authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell have combined to have nearly thirty years of experience teaching college writing. As a result, they have a keen understanding of what works in the classroom and an uncanny ability to choose the most appropriate texts. Students are given great rhetorical models to use in their own writing in Patterns for College Writing, while instructors are given options that have been tested in the classroom and include both classic and modern pieces. Patterns for College Writing is the most popular reader in the United States for a number of reasons, including the fact that it contains more examples of student writing than any other reader, the most comprehensive coverage of active reading, research, and the writing process, including a five-chapter mini-rhetoric, the clearest explanations of the patterns of development, and the most thorough apparatus of any rhetorical reader, which are all reasons why it is the best-selling reader in the country. In addition, the new edition features fascinating new readings and expands upon previous material regarding critical reading, the use of sources, and research. It can now be downloaded to a computer, tablet, or electronic reader in the form of an interactive e-book published by Bedford, as well as in a wide range of other formats for electronic books.
