Writing Analytically

Author: David Rosenwasser
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9781337559461
Release Date: 2018-01-01
Genre: Education

WRITING ANALYTICALLY treats writing as a tool of thought, offering prompts that lead students through the process of analysis and help them to generate original, well-developed ideas. The authors of this brief, popular rhetoric believe that learning to write well requires learning to use writing as a tool to think well. Rosenwasser and Stephen emphasize analysis as a mode of enriching understanding that precedes and in some cases supplants argument. Materials in the eighth edition are better integrated, more contextualized and--when possible--condensed. A new chapter, Thinking Like a Writer, contains a broad array of strategies for integrating opportunities for writing into a course. It makes explicit a subtext that pervades the book: that to think of yourself as a writer is to see more, to think differently and to engage the meaning of things more earnestly.
