Promotes students’ active and critical reading skills to encourage effective writing
Known for its curated selection of readings, the Blair Reader introduces the enduring issues students confront as citizens in the twenty-first century. Students are encouraged to contribute to these conversations in the wider world by responding to the ideas of others.
Classic and contemporary selections stimulate discussion, encouraging them to discover new ideas and to view familiar ideas in new ways. The readings represent diverse ideas and genres; students 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 instruction. Thoughtfully revised, the 10th Edition includes new readings, new study questions and writing and research prompts, and new full-color visuals with an engaging design.
