The Well-Crafted Argument guides students through the process of writing effective argumentative essays across the disciplines. The two-part structure of this rhetoric/reader includes a complete pedagogical apparatus--with coverage of reading, writing, and researching a topic--and an anthology of readings grouped into eight thematic clusters. In-depth instruction, combined with real student writings, engages students and helps them discover their own voices. The Third Edition features a greater emphasis on visual argument, while maintaining the authors' practical, skill-building approach. Each chapter ends with a summary, checklist, and writing projects that allow students to apply what they learn. In addition to guidance on drafting and revising arguments, the authors provide a variety of composition strategies, from free-writing to outlining. Active reading tools, such as note-taking, summary writing, and shared reading, are also encouraged.
