The Real World Reader: A Rhetorical Reader for Writers

James S. Miller

An innovative rhetorical reader to prepare students for an introductory college writing course

Divides the process of rhetorical analysis into logically sequenced steps focusing on five key concepts—purpose, audience, argument, voice, and credibility. Students use this step-by-step process to identify, analyze, and master the multiple modes of writing they will encounter in school, college, and career.

Features

  • Includes both formal writing and popular writing from everyday life—academic essays, blogs, magazine articles, news photos, social media posts, YouTube videos, editorials, ads, emails, cartoons, and more.
  • Uses a rhetorical framework to teach writing—rather than examining different modes of writing in isolation—and reveals what all forms of writing have in common.
  • Introduces rhetorical concepts through a variety of informal and formal writing examples, showing students how rhetorical patterns intersect.
  • Offers practical tools and exercises for students to analyze specific elements within a given piece of writing.
  • The step-by-step writing instruction and diverse readings allow students to critically write and read four distinct types of selections—informal, formal, academic selections, and sample student essays.
  • Connects rhetorical analysis to cultural analysis with content that ranges from debates on multiculturalism to critiques of modern political compaigning.
  • Focuses on familiar, "real world" writing, demonstrating the important role that writing plays in everyday life.
