This book is a free and open resource for composition instructors and students, full of essays that could supplement OER rhetoric and writing texts that lack readings. All of the essays in this reader are versatile rhetorically and thematically. It is arranged alphabetically by author name. Each essay has a series of hashtags that apply to the essay in some way. You can search for essays thematically for topics like education, the environment, politics, or health. You can also search for essays based on composition concepts like analysis, synthesis, and research. You can search for essays that are based on shared values, essays that rely heavily on ethos, logos, or pathos, essays that are very kairos-dependent, and essays that are scholarly.

This collection was created in Google Docs so that it is easily adapted and edited.

Antiracist Writing Assessment Ecologies: Teaching and Assessing Writing for a Socially Just Future
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

In Antiracist Writing Assessment Ecologies, Asao B. Inoue theorizes classroom writing assessment as a complex system that is "more than" its interconnected elements. To explain how and why antiracist work in the writing classroom is vital to literacy learning, Inoue incorporates ideas about the white racial habitus that informs dominant discourses in the academy and other contexts. Inoue helps teachers understand the unintended racism that often occurs when teachers do not have explicit antiracist agendas in their assessments. Drawing on his own teaching and classroom inquiry, Inoue offers a heuristic for developing and critiquing writing assessment ecologies that explores seven elements of any writing assessment ecology: power, parts, purposes, people, processes, products, and places.

Arguing Through Writing

CC BY-SA
Rating
5.0 stars

Abstract
Arguing Through Writing is heavily adapted from the Lumen Learning English Composition 2 book on the SUNY OER list of texts. The textbook focuses on the writing process, as well as rhetorical modes. Emphasis is on the modes of causal analysis, argument, definition, and classification. MLA style and academic writing moves are featured. The textbook would be appropriate for either college-level Composition 1 or 2. The text features readings for each of the modes, as well as historical and contemporary texts in a reader section. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyright by Lumen Learning. It was then developed in March 2020 by Joshua Dickinson, Associate Professor of English at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. The changes to this book listed are released under a CC-BY-SA license and are copyright by Joshua Dickinson of Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY.

Description
Arguing Through Writing covers college-level writing, basic research, and argumentation with a combination of contemporary, historical, and classical writing models. The text focuses on classification, definition, causal analysis, and argumentation, working with these writing modes and pairing those with relevant texts. Several chapters are devoted to playing the writing game and knowing its moves. Visual arguments, MLA style, preparing annotated bibliographies, and film analysis are covered. The reader includes selections from Michel de Montaigne, Steven Pinker, H. G. Wells' history, Flannery O'Connor, Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Waldo Emerson, Gordon Allport, and Stephen Leacock.

Arguments in Context

Rating
0.0 stars

Arguments in Context is a comprehensive introduction to critical thinking that covers all the basics in student-friendly language. Intended for use in a semester-long course, the text features classroom-tested examples and exercises that have been chosen to emphasize the relevance and applicability of the subject to everyday life. Three themes are developed as the text proceeds from argument identification and analysis, to the standards and techniques of evaluation: (i) the importance of asking the right questions, (ii) the influence of biases, cognitive illusions, and other psychological factors, and (iii) the ways that social situations and structures can enhance and impoverish our thinking. On this last point, the text includes sustained discussion of disagreement, cooperative dialogue, testimony, trust, and social media. Overall, the text aims to equip readers with a set of tools for working through important decisions and disagreements, and to help them become more careful and active thinkers.
