Rate this:
SO WHAT? decodes argumentation and academic writing in plain language, using examples that students can easily understand. The book teaches "apprentice scholars" tools for investigation, communication, and critical thinking in school and beyond. SO WHAT? includes clear guidance, examples, andpractice exercises for how to: construct significant, compelling arguments; read and think critically; develop and revise drafts; collaborate with other writers; and make smart choices in style and arrangement. As one reviewer said, SO WHAT? is "more engaging, more provocative, and morecomprehensive" than most of its competitors.SO WHAT? explains how a scholarly apprenticeship can build skills, knowledge, and habits that students can use throughout college and in their personal and professional lives. Rather than introducing every scholarly style or genre, we teach students how to think rhetorically by providing them withheuristics and tools that they can use in a variety of settings. This approach exposes students to habits of mind and writing techniques they can transfer to other classes and to everyday and professional contexts.
