High-interest, thought-provoking, thematic content to spur students’ learning

Reading and Writing About Contemporary Issues gathers only the most stimulating nonfiction pieces regarding real-world problems, connects them thematically, and uses them as tools to build on students’ reading and writing through numerous examples for analysis. Students see not only how to use these skills, but why we use them. Each reading is organized into thematic units that focus on contemporary issues, and has been chosen to interest and motivate students.

The 3rd Edition uses the readings as direct teaching tools rather than examples. Readings are organized based on level of difficulty–and are drawn from a variety of sources, such as blogs and websites, books, textbooks, periodicals, popular magazines, and newspapers. This wide selection of readings and flexible organization adapts easily to a variety of integrated reading and writing courses and to a broad range of students.
