This innovative reader focuses on writers' purposes and processes for reading and writing, and on the connections "between," reading and writing. Every chapter integrates purpose, process, and rhetorical strategies for achieving specific writing goals. Sixty-four selections by both professional and student writers illustrate these purposes. The readings address reading and writing purposes and processes, observing, remembering, investigating, explaining, evaluating, problem solving, and arguing. For those interested in improving their reading, writing and research abilities.
