Meeting your students where they are, COMPOSING TO COMMUNICATE: A STUDENT’S GUIDE prepares and engages an increasingly varied first-year composition classroom, in which all students need to achieve the same course outcomes but are not all learning at the same skill level. The fundamental concept behind COMPOSING TO COMMUNICATE: A STUDENT’S GUIDE is that writing is a communication skill grounded in problem solving. The textbook uses accessible language and opportunities for practice to help students conceptualize writing tasks with key communication goals in mind and become more confident, efficient, and effective writers, in college and in their professional lives. Writing project chapters cover evaluations, arguments, narratives, profiles, literary analyses, and researched writing, and include chapters focused on community engagement and vital 21st century literacy skills. Every Part 2 chapter shows real student work in proposal and final draft, and includes an interview with the student writer. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2016 MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition.

Brillant, lakonisch und bitterkomisch: Das Psychogramm unserer Zeit. Mann und Frau. Mutter und Tochter. Freunde und Freundinnen. In zwölf Stories erkundet Kristen Roupenian das Lebensgefühl von Menschen in einer schönen neuen Welt. Fragile Hierarchien und prekäre Lebenssituationen auf der einen, das Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit und Spaß auf der anderen Seite: Alles ist möglich, aber wer sind wir, wenn wir alles sein können? Mit so viel Einsicht in die Wünsche und Ängste des Einzelnen hat man noch nicht über das Zusammenleben in dieser neuen Zeit gelesen - einer Zeit, in der alles greifbar ist, und es doch immer schwerer wird, auch nur das Geringste davon zu erreichen. „Einzigartig – zum ersten Mal werden die Befindlichkeiten der Millennials beschrieben.“ Washington Post

Eine hinreißende Geschichte über Pflanzen, Liebe und die Wissenschaft Hope Jahren hat das, wovon viele Menschen träumen: einen Beruf, der ihr Herz und ihr Leben erfüllt. Seit sie denken kann, ist die Geo-Biologin fasziniert von der Natur – von Pflanzen, Bäumen, Blättern, Samenkörnern und den unglaublichen Geschichten, die sie uns erzählen, sogar noch in fossiler Form. Wie ist es beispielsweise möglich, dass ein Kirschkern hundert Jahre lang geduldig warten kann, bis er sich auf einmal dazu entscheidet zu keimen? Hope Jahrens Werdegang von der kindlichen Forscherin zur angesehenen Wissenschaftlerin, die sich trotz zahlreicher Hindernisse in einer Männerwelt behauptet, ist eine inspirierende und mitreißende Geschichte voller Leidenschaft, Durchhaltevermögen und ewiger Neugierde. Ein wunderbares Gleichnis über die Kraft der Natur und die Freude des Entdeckens, das einen ganz neuen Blick auf die Pflanzenwelt eröffnet. Seite für Seite. Blatt für Blatt. Für die New York Times ist Hope Jahrens »Blattgeflüster« eines der 100 besten Bücher des Jahres 2016.

Ein neuer Blick auf alte Freunde Erstaunliche Dinge geschehen im Wald: Bäume, die miteinander kommunizieren. Bäume, die ihren Nachwuchs, aber auch alte und kranke Nachbarn liebevoll umsorgen und pflegen. Bäume, die Empfindungen haben, Gefühle, ein Gedächtnis. Unglaublich? Aber wahr! – Der Förster Peter Wohlleben erzählt faszinierende Geschichten über die ungeahnten und höchst erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten der Bäume. Dazu zieht er die neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse ebenso heran wie seine eigenen unmittelbaren Erfahrungen mit dem Wald und schafft so eine aufregend neue Begegnung für die Leser: Wir schließen Bekanntschaft mit einem Lebewesen, das uns vertraut schien, uns aber hier erstmals in seiner ganzen Lebendigkeit vor Augen tritt. Und wir betreten eine völlig neue Welt ...

Google, Facebook, E-mail und Online-Games haben unser Leben fest im Griff. Wie wird unsere Zukunft aussehen? Wir wollten sie als smarte „Diener“ unseres Alltags, nun sind sie unsere Herren. Sie sollten uns helfen, Zeit zu sparen, nun sind sie zu Zeitfressern sondergleichen geworden. Wir wollten sie programmieren, jetzt programmieren sie uns. Wenn insbesondere junge Leute hemmungslos in Blogs, Chats, Kontaktforen und Onlinewelten abtauchen, hat das einen tieferen Psychologischen Grund: Menschliche Beziehungen erscheinen zunehmend kompliziert und verletzend. Dafür bietet das Netz Kontakt ohne wahre Intimität, Gemeinschaft ohne Risiko, Nähe mit ausreichendem Sicherheitsabstand. Der moderne Mensch hat oft 100 Facebook-Friends, aber keinen einzigen echten Freund. Computer und Internet geben uns die Freiheit, überall zu arbeiten – in Wahrheit sind wir überall „gemeinsam einsam“. Sherry Turkle zeigt, wie Technologien zunehmend die Funktionsweise unseres Geistes und unser Gefühlsleben beeinflussen. Sie führt uns mit aktuellen Studien und drastischen Fallbeispielen vor Augen, welche ernsten Konsequenzen die gedankenlose Hingabe an die digitalen Verführer hat. Aber sie verdammt die Cyberwelt keineswegs als Teufelszeug. Denn wir haben durchaus die Chance, ihre immer grenzenloseren Möglichkeiten verantwortungsvoll zu nutzen.

Sind Swimmingpools gefährlicher als Revolver? Warum betrügen Lehrer? Der preisgekrönte Wirtschaftswissenschaftler Steven D. Levitt kombiniert Statistiken, deren Zusammenführung und Gegenüberstellung auf den ersten Blick absurd erscheint, durch seine Analysetechnik aber zu zahlreichen Aha-Effekten führt. Ein äußerst unterhaltsamer Streifzug durch die Mysterien des Alltags, der uns schmunzeln lässt und stets über eindimensionales Denken hinausführt.
