Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing is a brief yet versatile resource for teaching argument, persuasive writing, and research. It makes argument concepts clear and gives students strategies to move from critical thinking and analysis to crafting effective arguments. Comprehensive coverage of classic and contemporary approaches to argument — Aristotelian, Toulmin, Rogerian, visual argument, and more — provides a foundation for nearly 50 readings on current issues, such as student loan forgiveness and gun violence, topics that students will want to engage with and debate. For today’s ever-increasingly visual learners who are challenged to separate what’s real from what’s not, new activities and visual flowcharts support information literacy, and newly annotated readings highlight important rhetorical moves. This affordable guide can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings.
