At a Glance: Paired Sources is based on a feature that is present in numerous compositions texts - paired essays. Paired essays are especially effective when presenting patterns such as definition, comparison, and contrast, argumentation, and cause and effect because they offer students the ready-made opportunity to synthesise and present their reactions to professional opinions. At a Glance: Paired Sources is designed to accompany Lee Brandon's At a Glance Series. Key features of the readings in this brand new publication include: - Contains 13 pairs of sources containing mainly essays, short stories and a poem. - Several paired readings will offer same-side views from different perspectives so those students can discuss their own positions and synthesise the sources - Each pair of readings will include guided questions: purpose, support, organisation, special techniques, and personal reactions - Each set of sources will be introduced with a brief commentary of the theme and conclude with suggestions for writing including research tips, especially when using electronic sources.This flexible series includes a separate handbook for sentences, paragraphs, essays, and paired sources.
