Detailed chapter openers offer strategies for using each rhetorical mode, including short examples from the readings within each chapter. Headnotes for each essay give a brief biography of its author, explain its context, and pinpoint one of the writerrs"s techniques. Questions on "Organization and Ideas" and "Technique and Style" and many suggestions for writing journal entries and essays follow each selection. Each chapter ends with additional writing assignments that ask the reader to compare two or more of the essays.
