THINKING AND WRITING IN THE HUMANITIES guides students through the process of planning, drafting, revising, and editing analytical and argument essays and research papers in the humanities. Writing in the humanities demands not only the basics of college-level composition but also instruction in the pursuit of critical inquiry. THINKING AND WRITING IN THE HUMANITIES provides a thorough, user-friendly handbook that challenges and stimulates students to attain high standards in their compositions in ways they find accessible and relevant. The text allows humanities instructors to present their students with challenging writing assignments and to expect focused, insightful papers in return without having to spend valuable class time teaching composition techniques.
