Book Description

The reason that Rereading America is still the most widely used book of its kind is because it is effective. Educators have told us time and time again that they have witnessed their students develop as critical thinkers and writers as they struggle with cross-curricular readings that not only engage them, but also challenge them to reexamine deeply held cultural assumptions. One example of this would be the view that success is solely the result of hard work. When students investigate the myths that are the basis for those beliefs, extensive apparatus provides them with a tested framework that may be used to revisit, revise, or defend those assumptions. Rereading America has remained at the forefront of contemporary American society, battling cultural myths as they continue to exist, transform, and emerge in novel ways.

 

Students are introduced to one of the most common misconceptions of our time, which is that technological innovation leads to an improved society, through a chapter that has been updated in the eleventh edition. The collection of readings in this version has also been updated. Additionally, as a response to the requests made by instructors for additional writing training, there are now more questions that assist students in applying the concepts employed in the readings to their own writing.
