This wide-ranging reader introduces student writers to the forms and genres typical of the academic, work and public communities. Featuring a three-part structure that distinguishes between writing for the academic, workplace, and public communities, this innovative reader opens each part with introductions to the expectations of readers in that community. Readings and discussion identify and explore the relevant concerns, issues, trends, and ethical standards of each group. Comprehensive collections of “Texts and Documents” provide numerous and varied examples of the common forms of writing within each community—from abstracts, to brochures, to letters to the editor. Accompanying apparatus encourages students to analyze the writing conventions in each community in order to communicate effectively.
