Based on the principle that the ability to develop and support a thesis persuasively is of utmost importance for beginning writers, Writing with a Thesis: A Rhetoric and Reader, 11th Edition, dispenses clear and practical writing advice. Sarah Skwire skillfully weaves humor into her advice and in the text's examples of good professional writing--for a uniquely useful text that remains enjoyable to read and to teach from.

By clearly illustrating how persuasion underlies all good writing, the authors help students understand the need for a thesis statement as well as support of the thesis statement and for detailed, clear writing. Each chapter focuses on the distinct rhetorical patterns that beginning writers need to know, such as description, comparison/contrast, process, and cause and effect.

Best of all, the text's short, easy-to-read essays ensure that your class time will focus not on what the readings mean, but on what they mean for your students' writing.
