Captivating readings and clear writing strategies help students find their voices

With engaging readings and proven writing instruction, Subject & Strategy guides students in selecting, practicing, and mastering writing strategies that will help them succeed in any discipline. Example-driven instruction models writing strategies in action, and innovative classroom exercises and writing assignments help students identify strategies in the readings and put them into practice. Students are encouraged to see themselves as writers, and comprehensive, accessible coverage of reading and writing, research, documentation, and grammar provides a foundation for success.

In this edition, students are more at the forefront than ever. Student feedback helped to inform the selection of readings, and with every student essay featured in the book, real students share and reflect on reading and writing strategies that work.  In the words of one student, “Subject & Strategy made my freshman year of college much easier. I learned how to actually read, not just say the words but to look deep into them and understand what the writer is trying to tell us.”
