Real Questions: Reading and Writing Genres breaks open the concept of genre and shows students how it works in conversations that they care about. Drawing from a surprising variety of public and academic genres, including creative nonfiction, academic articles, blogs, Twitter posts, brochures, flyers, reviews, online multimodal texts, and public service ads, each chapter takes up a question at the heart of daily life and looks closely at ideas and genres that shape our responses to it. An in-depth introduction,along with carefully scaffolded questions and writing assignments, support students as they analyze writers’ choices and put their understanding of genre to work in their own writing — for real audiences and with real purpose. The print text is now integrated with e-Pages for Real Questions, designed to take advantage of what the Web can do.
