As early as Chapter 1, author Marcie Sims defines critical thinking and goes on to explain the meaning and function of specific critical thinking terms and tools throughout the book. This element of critical thinking was something that Sims found missing in developmental writing texts currently available. Reaching beyond the usual writing instruction found in other texts, Sims gets to the core of developing the writer, which is to develop the writer as a thinker-writer. This approach to writing provides students with the basic tools for writing well-organized and developed essays that are grammatically and mechanically correct. 0321964128 / 9780321964120 Write Stuff, The: Thinking Through Essays Plus NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0205870147 / 9780205870141 NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Valuepack Access Card 0321899881 / 9780321899880 The Write Stuff: Thinking Through Essays

Writing Philosophy: A Student's Guide to Writing Philosophy Essays is a concise, self-guided manual that covers the basics of argumentative essay writing and encourages students to master fundamental skills quickly, with minimal instructor input. Opening with an introductory chapter on how to read philosophy, the book then moves into the basics of writing summaries and analyzing arguments. It provides step-by-step instructions for each phase of the writing process, from formulating a thesis, to creating an outline, to writing a final draft, supplementing this tutorial approach with model essays, outlines, introductions, and conclusions. Skills essential to evaluating arguments, citing sources, avoiding plagiarism, detecting fallacies, and formatting final drafts are dealt with in detail. The final two chapters serve as a reference guide to common mistakes and basic skills in sentence construction, writing style, and word choice. Employing a rulebook format similar to that of the classic Elements of Style (by Strunk, White, and Angell), Lewis Vaughn distills helpful writing advice into simple rules that students can easily remember and apply--and that instructors can refer to when reviewing student papers. These rules cover essay organization, sentence structure, documentation styles, plagiarism, grammar, usage, and more. Written in a clear and engaging style and incorporating samples of student writing, Writing Philosophy is an indispensable resource for virtually any philosophy course.

Rereading America remains the most widely adopted book of its kind because it works: instructors tell us time and again that they've watched their students grow as critical thinkers and writers as they grapple with cross-curricular readings that not only engage them, but also challenge them to reexamine deeply held cultural assumptions, such as viewing success solely as the result of hard work. Extensive apparatus offers students a proven framework for revisiting, revising, or defending those assumptions as students probe the myths underlying them. Rereading America has stayed at the forefront of American culture, contending with cultural myths as they persist, morph, and develop anew. The tenth edition, developed with extensive input from users, features a refreshed collection of readings with a new chapter that introduces students to one of the most pervasive myths of our time: technological innovation fosters a more equal society. Also in response to instructors' requests for more writing instruction, there are now more questions that help students apply to their own writing the strategies used in the readings.

Writing Instruction: By award winning author Barry B. Longyear, a step-by-step course in developing the outlook, method, and skills that will enable you to write the best stories of which you are capable. About Barry B. Longyear's The Write Stuff . . . "Don't read this book. Please. You'll only make my job harder. You see, it's true that we receive about 700 manuscripts a month. But the truth is that of those 700, 600 of them can go right back. It's easy to tell the writer doesn't yet have the right stuff. But reading this book will put you miles ahead of the rest of the pack. And the more people who read this book, the bigger the pack grows-the pack of real stories, the ones that make it hard for me choose which ones to publish, the ones I actually want to read. So don't read this book unless you want to make my job tougher . . . or want me to publish your stories someday." -Gordon Van Gelder, Editor, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction "I've enjoyed it and overall been quite impressed. There are a lot of really good insights and advice in there, presented in a thoroughly engaging way." -Stanley Schmidt, Editor, Analog Science Fiction and Fact
