Encouraging you to be an inventive thinker and writer, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE, Third Edition, illustrates how the act of writing is connected to your daily life as it helps you rediscover concepts, uncover meaning, and rethink the world around you. With a more reader-friendly design than ever, the third edition begins with an entire chapter devoted to helping you transition into college-level thinking and writing. It emphasizes the invention process throughout and offers twelve chapters to help you invent ideas more than any text on the market. Its seventy-plus reading selections by both professional and student writers expose you to a variety of disciplines. Breaking down the opposition between the personal spaces of everyday life and the critical discourse of academia, this text delivers pedagogy for making meaning and generating writing at the intersection of academic and nonacademic life. It is an excellent preparation for the academic reading and writing activities you will encounter throughout your college experience and well beyond. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2009 MLA HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS OF RESEARCH PAPERS, Seventh Edition.
