This is the required text in one of the college classes I teach, and is required by hundreds of other colleges as well. It sells for 50 bucks on Amazon - more at college bookstores. I scanned it to PDF and give it away free to my students. Hope this saves someone some money! http://www.amazon.com/Short-Takes-11th-Elizabeth-Penfield/dp/0205171370/ref=la_B001IOBGFA_1_1?ie=UTF8qid=1353230141sr=1-1 Book Description Publication Date: June 28, 2012 | ISBN-10: 0205171370 | ISBN-13: 978-0205171378 | Edition: 11 This lively collection of fifty-three short, readable selections by both student and professional writers provides useful models of the rhetorical modes. In addition to familiar names such as Barbara Ehrenreich, Richard Rodriguez, and William Raspberry, this reader features many fresh voices such as Anchee Min, Thomas Sowell, Anna Quindlen, Michael Chabon, and Dave Barry. Detailed chapter openers offer strategies for using each rhetorical mode, including short examples from the readings within each chapter. Headnotes for each essay give a brief biography of its author, explain its context, and pinpoint one of the writers techniques. Questions on Organization and Ideas and Technique and Style and many suggestions for writing journal entries and essays follow each selection. Each chapter ends with additional writing assignments that ask the reader to compare two or more of the essays. Great Resource for English Teachers February 22, 2012 By pinkcheetah This book is a must-have for high school English teachers. Each style of writing (comparison/contrast; description; narrative; etc.) is broken down in easy-to-understand language, and the explanations are short enough that students will actually read it. The model essays are good (comparable to other collections); however, the description of each essay type is what sets this book above the others. I used it in my classroom with great success, and now as an English Instructional Coach who works with teachers in planning and implementing lessons, I recommend it often.
