Publisher Comments:

At the heart of this book is the desire for its readers to become active and engaged citizens through writing, reflection, reflexivity and reading. Challenging, proactive readings push readers to analyze and understand how their personal ideologies arise out of and relate to the larger culture. Assorted writing assignments present opportunities for writing with different rhetorical purposes. The readings are integrated with the writing assignments through sequenced reading, writing, and thinking assignments. Writing as a Reflective Action challenges its audience to read the word and the world in relationship to their understanding of who they are and what is important to them. For anyone interested in gaining a strong personal understanding of writing, reading and the world around them.
