Encouraging you to be an inventive thinker and writer, THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE 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. The Fourth Edition offers twelve chapters to help you invent ideas, more than any other text on the market. With more than 80 reading selections by both professional and student writers responding to the chapter prompts, this book fully engages you in writing academic essays. 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 reading and writing activities you will encounter throughout your college experience and well beyond.
