This reader explores the relationship inherent between writer and reader by emphasizing the connection between good reading and writing skills. Based on the idea that writing is genuine communication, the text presents four major types of writing that represent a progression from private to public discourse: Expressive Discourse is illustrated by Anecdote, Autobiographical Narrative, and Reflection; Affirming Discourse is illustrated by Opinion Essay, Position Paper, and Editorial; Persuasive Discourse is illustrated by Evaluation, Argument, and Proposal; and Informative Discourse is illustrated by Observation, Explanation, and Critical Analysis.
