Can you think of a college course that doesn’t require reading? Whether in common-read programs, first-year writing, or writing-intensive courses, students need critical reading skills in order to engage with ideas and become successful academic writers. John Ruszkiewicz’s A Reader’s Guide to College Writing gives students an insider’s view of the way critical reading really works and how a writer’s rhetorical choices lead to powerful writing. In dynamic, pocket-sized lessons, readers are drawn into the conversation with a wise, helpful, and fun professor who knows just the right example to illustrate a concept. Simple, easy-to-spot marginal notes highlight the moves that matter in academic writing and help students apply the chapters’ advice. Flexible end-of-chapter activities work with a variety of writing assignments, while appendices with MLA and APA guidelines give students quick-reference help they can depend on.
