Based in current genre theory, this rhetoric helps students make more informed rhetorical choices and participate more effectively as writers within academic, workplace and public contexts. This new text teaches students how to use genres to assess, understand, and write within different scenes or writing situations. Discussions of writing for academic contexts cover writing analysis, argument, and research-based genres. Public and workplace writing is illustrated though discussions of other genresletters, resumes, proposals, reports. Through specific guided questions, students identify and analyze new genres and use genre knowledge to read and write their way into different situations both in and beyond the college composition course.
