Overview

This cutting-edge rhetoric combines a practical, process-oriented approach to argumentative writing with dynamic visuals and fresh, contemporary content. Thoroughly tested in the authors' own classrooms, the essays--including those written by the authors' own students--serve as motivational models for student writing. Cartoons, comic strips, photographs, and skill-building exercises complement the book's process pedagogy to stimulate critical thinking on a wide range of issues. DYNAMIC ARGUMENT, Brief Second Edition, presents thirteen chapters sequenced to lead students through the writing process. From chapter to chapter, students discover a variety of persuasive writing tools. They then learn to develop their own points of view and to use logic to support them.
