Best-selling authors Stephen Mandell and Laurie Kirszner have brought simplicity to the study of argument with their Practical Argument: A Text and Anthology 3rd Edition. A full-color, straightforward, accessible introduction to argumentative writing, the etextbook (originally in Kindle ePub format and converted PDF format) employs a step-by-step, exercise-driven approach to get to the heart of what college students need to understand both classical and contemporary argument. Practical Argument foregoes the technical terminology that confuses writing students and explains concepts in understandable, everyday language, with examples that are immediately relevant to any students’ lives. Thoroughly updated with exciting readings and new topics, Practical Argument 3e is now available as PDF (this product) or packaged with a LaunchPad (sold separately), and online resource that provides:
- Interactive exercises and tutorials for writing, reading, and research
- Comprehension quizzes on the readings and argument instruction
- LearningCurve adaptive, game-like practice that helps all students focus on the topics where they need the most help, such as claims, fallacies, evidence, and other key elements of argument
Practical Argument A Text and Anthology 3e is also available in a short version without the reader.
