Description:

Showing students that the act of writing is connected to their daily lives, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE, Brief, emphasizes invention to help students rediscover concepts, uncover meaning, and rethink the world around them. The fifth edition offers 13 chapters to help students invent ideas, more than any other text on the market. With more than 35 reading selections by professional and student writers-many responding to the chapter prompts-this book fully engages students in writing academic essays. This edition includes a new chapter on rhetorical analysis, providing instructors with examples and assignments to help students formally think through rhetorical concerns such as audience, use of appeals, and so on. Additionally, each writing project chapter includes Beyond the Essay activities to help students consider how the work they have done to invent essays can transfer to other types of writing, including sound recordings, visual presentations, and other multimodal genres. A proven text, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE is noted for its fresh voice, colorful use of images, and the soundness and timeliness of its pedagogical foundation. It breaks down the opposition between the personal spaces of everyday life and the critical discourse of academia. The result is a book offering students and teachers pedagogy for making meaning and generating writing, at the intersection of academic and nonacademic life. With its emphasis on invention, The COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE gives students excellent preparation for the academic reading and writing activities they may encounter throughout their college experience and well beyond.
