Laurie G Kirszner, Stephen R Mandell
Authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell have thirty years of experience teaching college writing between them, so they know what works and have a good eye for selecting appropriate readings for the classroom. In Patterns for College Writing, they offer both students and teachers tried-and-true options that strike a good middle ground between classic and modern essays. Patterns for College Writing is the best-selling reader in the country for many reasons, including: more examples of student writing than any other reader; the clearest explanations of the patterns of development; the most thorough apparatus of any rhetorical reader; and the most comprehensive coverage of argumentative writing. And there are some really cool new readings, graphics, and discussion and casebook subjects in this updated version. Downloadable versions of Patterns for use on computers, tablets, and e-readers are now on sale. This edition is a Bedford e-Book to Go.
