COMING FROM HOME is an innovative reader arranged around the theme of families and the importance of community. Containing 71 selections--essays (including student essays), poems, stories, and memoirs--it provides a variety of ethnic, cultural, economic, sociological, psychological, and literary perspectives. Journal writing and intertextual questions (asking students to work with common threads within a number of works) characterize the extensive, integrated pedagogical support that contributes to making COMING FROM HOME the basis for an exciting and unusually effective focus for writing courses.
