This thematic reader was developed to meet the specific needs of mid-level writers, and focuses on the variety of influences that shape our lives—including people, events, cultures, media, work, and technology. All of the readings are short, accessible, engaging, and are culled from a wide range of sources. Each reading is accompanied by effective pedagogy, including pre-reading activities, post-reading activities, and paragraph and essay writing assignments. Selections by both professional writers and students appeal to today's students. Headnotes provide a brief introduction to each selection, identifying the source and establishing a context for consideration. Journal Writing assignments encourage students to explore their ideas about featured topics before reading. Practical advice on how to approach each essay, such as reading or review techniques that will improve the students' comprehension and recall of each essay, is offered prior to reading. Finding Meaning questions help student's assess their comprehension of a reading's literal content. Understanding Technique sections guide students in analyzing the writer's methodology. For example, students may be asked to evaluate a writer's thesis statement; assess the effectiveness of a title, introduction, or conclusion; or study how the writer uses topic sentences or transitional words and phrases. Paragraph-length assignments offer writers the opportunity to explore a focused topic; essay-length assignments give students experience in narrowing a topic and developing a short essay. Assignments often provide prompts that offer advice on how to approach the assignment or what to include. Additional exercises stimulate interest and creativity by offering light, spontaneous writing assignments that, alternately, may be used as collaborative learning activities.

Teaching writing as part of a building activity provides students with an easy to remember image that helps them understand and apply good writing construction. This building process helps them see how each writing block sets the foundation for the next block; as a result, their confidence in writing skills grows. The first foundational block is writing correct sentences, the second, writing effective paragraphs, and finally writing effective essays. Just as actual foundations require raw materials, so does each writing building block require specific elements. For example, in grammar, to build a correct sentence, you need nouns, verbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and other grammatical elements. As the third book of the Building Better series, _Building Better Essays_ builds on students’ knowledge of effective paragraph construction, covered in Building Better Paragraphs, to get them to the next step of putting paragraphs together successfully for coherent essays. Many writing books present content in too complex a manner without enough opportunities for practice or present so many topics that simply overwhelm the student. The Building Better series evolved to be flexible enough that they can also be used as a quick reference guide by all college students or writing instructors. Any student who needs help writing concise and clear essays can benefit from the pedagogy of Building Better Essays. Instructors looking for a rich focus on essay construction, simple and brief explanations that are easy to remember, and variety of practice exercises will find it in Building Better Essays.
