Covering every step of research, writing, and documentation, Writing from Sources provides a complete guide to source-based writing. The book builds from fundamental skills -- such as annotating a passage -- to more demanding ones such as integrating sources smoothly into an original argument. Examples, exercises, and guidance throughout help students gain confidence with essential concepts, while numerous readings drawn from a variety of sources provide models and practice in every skill.
