Description: THE CIVIL MIND engages students in relevant national discourse by immersing themselves in some of the predominate conversations taking place in American culture. Issues of national concern such as race, religion, immigration, sexuality, technology, and terrorism are at the heart of writing instruction in THE CIVIL MIND, so students are reading, thinking, talking, and writing in response to a wide variety of national debates. As students evaluate their cultural context in relation to certain issues, they can better understand and participate in that culture, no matter if their opinions are conservative, liberal, or somewhere in between. There is a place for everyone in THE CIVIL MIND, and the purpose of this text is to introduce students to elements of writing while exploring elements of the greater American conversation that is continually taking place across the nation. THE CIVIL MIND brings a dynamic approach to writing?combining tried and true writing methods with thematically-arranged, current readings about what is happening in the world right now. This text offers opportunities to change the way writing and civic issues are taught, and provides varied source material to support lively class discussions. THE CIVIL MIND is a complete resource for writing teachers of all experience levels?from the beginner to the expert?and is flexible enough for success in classrooms at a variety of institutions?including community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and universities.
