AUTHORS: Hirschberg, Stuart - ©2014
PATTERNS ACROSS CULTURES is a short anthology driven by the principle that as the world gets smaller, you should understand diverse cultural perspectives--from within the United States and from other countries. Many of the reading selections in the text are by writers who have never been anthologized, providing an invigorating alternative to traditional anthologies. After each reading, questions on "Meaning," "Technique," and "Language" help you examine how the selection utilizes both the primary rhetorical pattern and other patterns as well; calls out key vocabulary terms; highlights thematic connections between selections; and provides prompts for both personal and critical writing. You can use the alternative thematic Table of Contents and Thematic Links questions as inspiration for class discussions and writing assignments.
