For courses in English Composition.
The acclaimed rhetorical modes reader, with remarkably detailed writing guidance
Best-seller The Longman Reader, Brief Edition includes its abundant and highly praised pedagogy as well as a wealth of readings organized by patterns of development (an alternative table of contents organizes them thematically). The opening chapters focus on reading critically and the writing process. The subsequent chapters begin with detailed writing instruction, including an annotated student paper and revision and peer review checklists, and end with professional essays. These professional essays range widely in subject matter and approach–from the humorous to the informative, from personal meditation to argument–and capture students' interest while demonstrating specific patterns of development. The Longman Reader shares the core pedagogical material as well as many of [L1] the same readings with The Longman Writer.
