With a real-world genre orientation, attention to diverse media, focus on visual literacy, and emphasis on the ethics of writing, the Third Edition of The Call to Write continues to break new ground in composition. Organized by genres-letters, memoirs, public documents, profiles, reports, commentaries, proposals, and reviews-this innovative rhetoric gives students the practice they need to write both in college and in the public sphere. Connecting writing to the real worlds of everyday life, college, and work, it gives students reasons to write and the skills to help them succeed. A strong emphasis on public writing promotes civic involvement through writing-to inform the public, to shape opinion, to advocate change, etc.-while relevant, provocative readings underscore when and why citizens are called to write. The Third Edition retains the best features of the Second Edition while greatly expanding the coverage of research. This hardcover version includes a grammar handbook.
