Overview

About the Product

Help students realize their power as authors Students today are writing more than ever. Everyone’s an Author bridges the gap between the writing students already do—online, at home, in their communities—and the writing they’ll do in college and beyond. It builds student confidence by showing that they already know how to think rhetorically and offers advice for applying those skills as students, professionals, and citizens. Because students are also reading more than ever, the third edition includes NEW advice for reading critically, engaging respectfully with others, and distinguishing facts from misinformation.

Features

  • An unparalleled emphasis on rhetoric equips students for any writing situation—in college and beyond Everyone’s an Author begins with rhetoric and presents it in a contemporary way that students will understand. With a “can-do” attitude, the authors show students that they already know how to think rhetorically and help them apply those existing skills and knowledge to become even more effective authors. Chapters on common genres of writing, argument, and research provide the roadmaps students need to approach any writing situation with confidence. And adaptive InQuizitive activities build student confidence with lower-order skills like editing sentences and documenting sources.

  • Readings and examples that students see themselves in From readings and examples to images and writing instruction, students—all of them—will see themselves in the pages of Everyone’s an Author. When students see experiences like theirs represented, they gain confidence in their own abilities to write, so careful attention is paid to representing diverse voices and perspectives. And a new chapter, “Engaging Respectfully with Others,” will help students approach the ideas of others with an open mind.

  • Presents writing as it’s done today: across media—with a curated collection of online readings Everyonesanauthor.tumblr.com, a dynamic collection of online media curated by book author Michal Brody, provides a rich, regularly updated source of readings—including articles, speeches, advertisements, and more—for inspiration, analysis, and response. The authors assume all writing done today is likely to mix media: images, audio, video, and text, so examples and readings—in the book and online—show that texts are more than just words on a page.

  • Supplemental resources that support and inspire instructors A comprehensive suite of instructor resources—including an instructor’s guide with ideas for writing assignments and in-class activities, LMS-ready assessment resources, and more—makes teaching with Everyone’s an Author efficient and rewarding.
