CRITICAL THINKING, THOUGHTFUL WRITING begins with the premise that thinking well involves using language well, and vice versa. This rhetoric with readings--written by critical thinking scholar John Chaffee and English professors Christine McMahon and Barbara Stout--provides thorough coverage of the writing process, going beyond the traditional rhetoric to teach you how to evaluate sources, images, and arguments. Each chapter focuses on a critical-thinking skill--such as problem solving or analysis of complex issues--that is explored through “Thinking-Writing Activities” and thematically linked readings. The text helps you develop these skills through carefully sequenced pedagogy and a cross-disciplinary approach that asks you to complete writing assignments and critically evaluate readings drawn from a variety of disciplines. The Fifth Edition offers new readings, a new “Thinking Critically About New Media” feature in each chapter, and more photos, which emphasize visual rhetoric.
