Books Info:

Writing Analytically free pdf Treating writing as thinking, the popular Writing Analytically, 7e delivers a sequence of specific prompts that teach students across the curriculum how the process of analysis and synthesis is a vehicle for original and well-developed ideas. The governing premise of this concise rhetoric is that learning to write well means learning to use writing in order to think well. The book treats writing as a tool of thought - a means of undertaking sustained acts of inquiry and reflection. An all-new Chapter 1 "Introduction to This Book, to College Writing, and to Thinking About Thinking" shows students how they can best utilize the text and its features to maximize their academic success. Two all-new "Toolkit" chapters help students sharpen their problem-solving skills. In addition, a fully revised and expanded chapter on reading offers a more developed presentation of "How to Read" as well as exercises to practice the reading-writing connection presented in the chapter.

About David Rosenwasser

David Rosenwasser teaches at Muhlenberg College, a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania, where he has been since the late 1980s. He and Jill Stephen created and implemented the Writing Across the Curriculum program there through a series of faculty seminars. During these seminars, Dr. Rosenwasser and Dr. Stephen discovered that while content faculty from across the disciplines maintained disciplinary-specific writing protocols, they essentially wanted the same thing from student writing: analysis. From this premise, WRITING ANALYTICALLY was born. Dr. Rosenwasser received his B.A. from Grinnell College and his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in the theory and history of narrative. His current interests include contemporary Irish literature and comic theory. His most recent literary papers include a study of the contemporary Irish writer Edna O'Brien in relation to the work of Joyce and Yeats as well as an analysis of the politics of Bruce Springsteen's albums during the Bush presidency, written collaboratively with a political science professor.

She received her B.A. from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and received her Ph.D. from NYU on rhetorical theory as evidenced in Renaissance poetry and prose. Aside from her writing with Rosenwasser on composition and writing program administration, she writes on poetry, especially Renaissance lyrics. Her current interests include the poetry of Frank O'Hara, Emily Dickinson, and contemporary Irish women writers.
