THE PURPOSEFUL ARGUMENT: A PRACTICAL GUIDE encourages students to recognize where argument fits into their lives and how it can be a practical response to the issues in a variety of communities -- School, Workplace, Family, Neighborhood, Social-Cultural, Consumer, and Concerned Citizen. When students are encouraged to honor and respond to issues that matter to them, their investment becomes evident and their writing purposeful. Students learn how argument can become an essential negotiating skill in their lives -- both in school and beyond. With a focus on accessibility, THE PURPOSEFUL ARGUMENT relies on clear explanations, explicit examples, and practical step-by-step exercises that guide students through the process of building an argument. An innovative anthology of arguments and readings, arranged by community, covers a wide range of cutting-edge issues that address concerns of many student writers.
