Literacy can empower students, but it may also limit their understanding if taught without regard for the context of their lives. Using his encounters with students, in high school, college, and state prison classrooms, as well as his own experience, Robert Yagelski looks at the sometimes ambiguous role of literacy in our lives and examines the mismatch between conventional approaches to teaching literacy and the literacy needs of students in a rapidly changing, increasingly technological world. He asserts that ultimately, the most important job of the English teacher is to reveal to students ways they can participate in the discourse that shapes their lives, and he offers a timely look at how technology has influenced the way we write and read. The scope of this fascinating book reaches beyond the classroom and offers insight about what it means to be "literate" in an economically driven, dynamic society. Addressing earlier works on the subject of literacy, as well as the ideas of theorists such as Foucault, this perceptive work has much to offer educators and anyone seeking to understand the nature of literacy itself.

In this careful examination of the nature of writing, Robert Yagelski demonstrates that the experience of writing, apart from the text that is produced through writing, can be deeply transformative for both individuals and communities. Writing as a Way of Being presents a dramatic new way to understand writing as an ontological act at a time of unprecedented social, educational, and environmental change. This book offers hope in the form of a pedagogy of writing as an ethical practice of being in the world. It describes a way to harness the power of writing so that writing instruction can become part of a broader effort to imagine and create a more just and sustainable future.

The blend of topical and chronological approaches helps students grasp key transformations that occur in each period of the life span. Other staples of the text are its emphasis on theories and their application to different aspects of development and its focus on the interplay of nature and nurture in development. This edition expands its examination of both biological bases of and sociocultural influences on life-span development.

&> For courses in Argument and Research. The most thorough theoretical foundation available Writing Arguments: A Rhetoric with Readings, 10/e integrates four different approaches to argument: the enthymeme as a logical structure, the classical concepts of logos, pathos, and ethos, the Toulmin system, and stasis theory. Focusing on argument as dialogue in search of solutions instead of a pro-con debate with winners and losers, it is consistently praised for teaching the critical-thinking skills needed for writing arguments. Major assignment chapters each focus on one or two classical stases (e.g. definition, resemblance, causal, evaluation, and policy). Each concept is immediately reinforced with discussion prompts, and each chapter ends with multiple comprehensive writing assignments. This comprehensive version contains a superlative thematic anthology of arguments on contemporary topics and some classics for balance. Also available in a Brief version with rhetoric only ( 0321964276 ) and a Concise version ( 0321964284) which is a redaction of the Brief edition . Also available with MyWritingLab™ This title is also available with MyWritingLab — an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results.
