Introduction Evolution itself is simply the process of change over time.
Lively and appealing professional and student model essays allow you to observe and internalize the strategies of successful writing. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
The Rhetoric is a streamlined 13 chapters, which may be used independently or sequentially. The first five chapters are grouped together under the heading Writing Strategies: These chapters help students learn and practise writing strategies for planning, drafting, revising, and editing.
Chapter 1 gives an overview of the principles of effective writing: Chapter 2 offers strategies for active reading, including summaries and critiques. Chapter 3 looks at strategies for prewriting, drafting, and finding a thesis. Chapter 4 focuses on more global revision strategies Chapter 5 focuses on local revisions, helping students to look closely at paragraphs, sentences, and words, and to think about their editing in more subtle ways as they consider style, tone, diction, sentence rhythm, variety, and emphasis.
Sets of checklists pose key questions for students to consider.
The remaining eight chapters in the Rhetoric feature various strategies, or modes such as illustration, cause and effect, definition, and argument, that can be used to develop an essay. While we point out that these strategies do not usually exist in isolation and may overlap considerably, these rhetorical modes can be considered natural ways of organizing our thoughts and ideas.
Each of these eight chapters includes a mini-reader, which contains at least one student essay and one professional essay that illustrate the relevant rhetorical mode. The first essay in each strategy section is annotated in the margin to highlight aspects of the rhetorical strategy under discussion.
The rhetorical strategies move progressively from more personal writing closer to home to more analytical writing and eventually to more research-based, formal writing.
These strategies also move from relatively straightforward to more complex kinds of writing, culminating with persuasion and argument. Chapter 14 shows how to narrow down a topic requiring secondary research, choose and evaluate sources, take notes, and blend in sources. This chapter includes examples of a topic and sentence outline for a research paper, and sample student research arguments using MLA and APA styles.
Chapter 15 explains and illustrates the most common primary research strategies: Student models, annotated with margin notes, embody the key features of these strategies. Chapters 16 and 17 show how to blend in external sources using the two main styles of documentation in common use: These chapters also show the correct formats for references within the body of the paper.
The Reader The third section of the text is the Reader, organized according to broad rhetorical categories of personal writing, analysis, and argument. Within these broader categories instructors will find examples of other rhetorical strategies, such as narrative or definition.
A brief biographical note about the author precedes each selection, and stimulating questions designed to enhance student understanding of structure and strategy follow it. Answering these questions, either in discussion or in writing, can help students engage more deeply with their writing as they gain more insight into important issues.
The Handbook The fourth and final section of the text is a concise grammar and mechanics handbook, which features tab indexing on each page for easy access to all material and consists of five parts: Explanations avoid using unnecessary grammatical terminology and are reinforced by sets of sentence exercises in the first three sections.
The section Sentence Elements explains how students can use sentence structure to improve their writing skills.
We also include connected-discourse exercises—unfolding narratives that engage and retain student interest while they correct errors—in the sections Sentence Errors and Editing to Correct Faulty Punctuation and Mechanics.
The Spelling section presents four useful spelling rules and an extensive list of commonly misspelled words. The Glossary of Word Usage offers a similarly comprehensive coverage of troublesome words. Instructors can use the Handbook either as a reference guide or as a basis for class discussion.
