Summary

Emerging uses an inquiry-based approach and engaging readings to help students understand and write about a variety of academic texts. Based on reviewer feedback, the third edition uses its assignment sequences to pose questions about the important but unsettled issues that shape students’ lives, such as “How is technology changing us?” and  “How can you make a difference in the world?” Thought-provoking, contemporary readings help them address those questions in a meaningful way. At its core, Emerging focuses on the skills necessary for academic writing in any discipline, and a thoroughly revised Part One offers concrete strategies for improving those skills: reading critically, synthesizing, arguing, using evidence, and revising.  Twenty vibrant new readings keep Emerging in tune with the newest ideas that will challenge students to think beyond their own experiences—and beyond the classroom.
