Descrizione
"Literature A World of Writing Stories, Poems, Plays, and Essays" is an exciting new full-color introduction to literature anthology with compelling visual pedagogy and a rich selection of thematically organized readings that make new literature familiar and familiar literature new. An extensive writing handbook shows students how to read critically and guides them through the process of writing arguments using dynamic visual tools to convey key concepts. Outstanding selections, engaging visual pedagogy, superior writing instruction - all for 20% less than comparable texts! Key concepts are presented visually using idea maps, fill-in boxes, and annotations that enable students to grasp main ideas more effectively. Diverse texts are presented in four casebooks called, "Reading Globally, Writing Locally."
