Dec 26, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoy teaching from this book because of the variety of material and its compactness. Most of the essays have a thematic mate within the text, so it's been easy when designing units that ask the students to compare styles, arguments, or the larger social implications of the material. In all, it's been a wonderful tool for teaching the finer points of expository analysis and composition to my students. I definitely enjoyed the variety of issues touched upon in the essays therein; there are a great many perspectives provided in regards to these issues, many of which I hadn't thought of or considered before.
