The popular, brief rhetoric that treats writing as thinking, WRITING ANALYTICALLY, Fifth Edition, offers 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 book's governing premise is that learning to write well means learning to use writing in order to think well. To that end, the strategies of this book describe thinking skills that employ writing. This book treats writing as a tool of thought--a means of undertaking sustained acts of inquiry and reflection.
