A new “Walk the Talk” game-board spread in every chapter guides students through concrete strategies for putting the chapter’s concepts to work.

A completely new chapter on collaboration, “Composing Together,” identifies purposes and strategies for working with others—tackling problems, sharing research and writing tasks, and offering constructive criticism.

A new approach to the chapter on writerly identity addresses issues of self-presentation in various kinds of texts. The all-new ReFrame accompanying this chapter follows student characters as they approach a digital ethnography assignment.

Updated coverage of library research in the revised “Wrong Turns or Shortcuts” ReFrame expands attention to evaluating sources and helps students learn to make effective choices about credible sources.
