This book is a free and open resource for composition instructors and students, full of essays that could supplement OER rhetoric and writing texts that lack readings. All of the essays in this reader are versatile rhetorically and thematically. It is arranged alphabetically by author name. Each essay has a series of hashtags that apply to the essay in some way. You can search for essays thematically for topics like education, the environment, politics, or health. You can also search for essays based on composition concepts like analysis, synthesis, and research. You can search for essays that are based on shared values, essays that rely heavily on ethos, logos, or pathos, essays that are very kairos-dependent, and essays that are scholarly.

This collection was created in Google Docs so that it is easily adapted and edited.

Abstract
Arguing Through Writing is heavily adapted from the Lumen Learning English Composition 2 book on the SUNY OER list of texts. The textbook focuses on the writing process, as well as rhetorical modes. Emphasis is on the modes of causal analysis, argument, definition, and classification. MLA style and academic writing moves are featured. The textbook would be appropriate for either college-level Composition 1 or 2. The text features readings for each of the modes, as well as historical and contemporary texts in a reader section. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyright by Lumen Learning. It was then developed in March 2020 by Joshua Dickinson, Associate Professor of English at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. The changes to this book listed are released under a CC-BY-SA license and are copyright by Joshua Dickinson of Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY.

Description
Arguing Through Writing covers college-level writing, basic research, and argumentation with a combination of contemporary, historical, and classical writing models. The text focuses on classification, definition, causal analysis, and argumentation, working with these writing modes and pairing those with relevant texts. Several chapters are devoted to playing the writing game and knowing its moves. Visual arguments, MLA style, preparing annotated bibliographies, and film analysis are covered. The reader includes selections from Michel de Montaigne, Steven Pinker, H. G. Wells' history, Flannery O'Connor, Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Waldo Emerson, Gordon Allport, and Stephen Leacock.

This resource guide begins by outlining the theory underlying the literacy work and then lays out the framework for the supports included in the Readers series. Subsequent chapters describe and illustrate the specific content literacy and language development strategies that have been chosen as being of particularly high impact. Although most of the strategies can be used in multiple ways, we have chosen to present them as occurring "Before, €During€ and After Reading" because of the importance of this mental model in effective content literacy instruction.

MHCC - WR122

Short Description:
This text explores the nature and structures of academic arguments through the analysis and implementation of critical and creative thinking techniques. Through a combination of the latest research in hemispheric science, neuropsychology, and brain development, along with the long-established rhetorical algorithms for analyzing the dynamic structure of arguments, this text attempts to develop a clearer and more robust model for the construction and deconstruction of various forms of argument. A variety of "texts" are used to help students develop rhetorical analysis skills, critical thinking tools, creative problem solving abilities, and a responsive, diverse, and integrative apparatus for establishing the veracity of truth claims in both academic and cultural contexts.

This book is designed to be fun! Students learn better when they are having fun, and teachers teach better too! The idea isn’t to have students copying things off the board and being bored (and getting naughty!), it is about students using the language to play games, solve puzzles, express themselves, communicate and have fun!
