We Are America: A Thematic Reader and Guide To Writing

WE ARE AMERICA: A THEMATIC READER AND GUIDE TO WRITING introduces beginning writers to the writing process, basic reading skills, and the essential elements of effective writing-unity, coherence, completeness, and sentence skills-and critical reading. This textbook includes a thematic reader whose selections reflect culturally and ethnically diverse points of view. Readings, discussion questions, and topics for writing are designed to mirror students' backgrounds and concerns, and to increase students' sensitivity to experiences and cultural perspectives different from their own. In addition, this version comes with cross-cultural thematic readings, practice exercises, and a grammar handbook.
