Expanded reading coverage. New reading instruction includes a new section on vocabulary, vocabulary teaching tips, a list of active reading strategies, and "read critically" questions following readings to gauge students’ reading comprehension.

Reflecting on Writing activities. This set of questions, appearing in every chapter in Parts 1-3 and one each for Parts 4-9, requires students to use metacognition to evaluate how they approach the writing process and how what they’ve learned in that particular section has influenced how they will approach writing assignments.

Multimodal Teaching Tips and Writing Assignments. New multimodal assignments, teaching suggestions, and coverage on how to effectively read multimodal texts allow instructors to make full use of various types of media in the classroom.

Updated grammar instruction using readings from the book. Examples to illustrate grammar concepts are pulled straight from the readings in the book, giving students valuable context to practice these skills.

Updated readings that engage students on current topics. This new edition features twenty-three new relevant and relatable readings on themes such as body image, masculinity, and the American immigrant experience. Also included is a new argument cluster focusing on trigger warnings on campus, three new Profiles of Success, student papers, and professional readings.
