Language Awareness collects seventy-seven classic and contemporary readings -- by author ranging from George Orwell to Toni Morrison -- treating the connections between language and politics, gender, media, technology, advertising, and prejudice. New Language Debates offer clusters of readings that treat one of three hot-button issues: "Should learning be censored?"; "Should English be the law?"; and "What's all the fuss about natural, organic, local foods?" Detailed guidance on effective reading, writing, and research habits and abundant suggestions for writing and discussion help students make the most of what they read as they develop as writers.
