Language Diversity and Academic Writing encourages students to understand the diversity within their own and others' language and apply that knowledge to their academic writing. Readings by linguists, journalists, novelists, educators, writing researchers, and student writers explore a range of questions about language and writing: How does language reflect and construct our identities and influence how we are perceived by others? How do the features and rules of language and writing change over time and across situations? How do we position ourselves as writers in academic contexts and beyond? Questions and assignments for each selection provide a range of activities for students, and the website for the Spotlight series ( offers comprehensive instructor support with sample syllabi and additional teaching resources.

The Bedford Spotlight Reader Series is an exciting line of single-theme readers, each featuring Bedford’s trademark care and quality. An Editorial Board of more than a dozen compositionists at schools focusing on specific themes assists in the development of the series. The readers in the series collect thoughtfully chosen readings sufficient for an entire writing course—about 35 selections—to allow instructors to provide carefully developed, high-quality instruction at an affordable price. Bedford Spotlight Readers are designed to help students make inquiries from multiple perspectives, opening up topics such as subcultures,, music, borders, humor, monsters, happiness, money, food, sustainability, and gender to critical analysis. The readers are flexibly arranged in thematic chapters, each focusing in depth on a different facet of the central topic.
