A thematic reader of unmatched breadth and balance, with a broad range of ideas

To write effectively, students must first be able to read actively and critically–and The Blair Reader’s selection of readings supports this approach. Classic and contemporary selections stimulate class discussion, encouraging readers to discover new ideas and to view familiar ideas in new ways. The readings represent diverse ideas and genres; students will read essays, speeches, and short stories. Every selection is followed by questions to promote critical thinking and response about the reading and the theme, both to complement the readings and to support classroom instruction.
