Deep in Thought: A Thematic Approach to Thinking and Writing Well
DEEP IN THOUGHT is a critical thinking and writing text which unifies the many disparate problems involved in composition around a single theme--the environment--and applies what it teaches to interesting and understandable writing assignments. Each section of the text builds on the previous section and relates to the upcoming section so that students have a tangible sense of growth, not only in terms of their writing skills but also in terms of their knowledge of a given subject. The class is involved in a single project that lasts the entire semester. Students are thus able to work together in groups in a productive way and to share their knowledge with one another.
