The fifth edition of THE WELL-CRAFTED ARGUMENT guides you through the process of writing effective arguments for every course you take. The authors include coverage of critical reading strategies; writing, researching, and documenting a topic; and an anthology of readings grouped into nine thematic clusters. In-depth instruction, combined with real student writings, helps you discover your own voice. The fifth edition includes many practical, skill-building tools to guide your progress. Each chapter in Part I ends with a "Summary," "Checklist," and "Writing Projects," while each cluster in Part II ends with "Connections Among the Clusters," "Writing Projects," and "Suggestions for Further Reading." These sections encourage you to apply what you've learned and go beyond the classroom if a topic is of particular interest to you. The new chapter on "Arguing Across the Disciplines" provides strategies for arguing effectively when writing in various disciplines. Available with InfoTracĀ® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
