This cutting-edge rhetoric with readings combines a process-oriented approach to argumentative writing with captivating essays and dynamic visuals. Thoroughly tested in the authors' own classrooms, the engaging readings explore different perspectives on relevant topics such as the obesity epidemic, student loan debt, and racism, bringing to life issues students grapple with in their lives as citizens, consumers, and family members. The essays--including those written by the authors' own students--serve as motivational models for student writing. Cartoons, comic strips, and photographs complement the readings and stimulate critical thinking on a wide range of issues. The rhetoric section of DYNAMIC ARGUMENT presents thirteen chapters sequenced to lead students through the writing process. From chapter to chapter, students discover a variety of persuasive writing tools. They then learn to develop their own points of view and to use logic to support them.
