Each chapter focuses on a critical-thinking skill--such as problem solving or analysis of complex issues--that is explored through Thinking-Writing Activities and thematically linked readings. Each of the readings challenges you to read actively, think critically, and then write about the readings. The Sixth Edition offers provocative new readings, a four-color interior design, expanded writing projects that help you fully interact with the writing process, annotations to student essays, and more in-chapter questions to help you reflect on the material.

Luke has really appreciated your teaching manner & not complained about going!" - Jennifer N. (Mom of one of my students) "Thank you for the added bonus of guiding Alia in her future. She said you were an excellent SAT teacher, but more importantly a remarkable life coach! ;-))" - Jinous R (Mom of one of my students) "I met a teacher, his name was Christian. He always smiled, every time had a happy look in his face. He was also really energetic, he went from one side to the other side of the classroom. Every single class Christian told us that we need to have motivation in order to be good at anything in this world. After hearing these words for a week. I finally got some motivation. I closed everything, every electronic device that would bother me. I realized that it wasn't me who was bad at memorizing things. It was myself who didn't have motivation to do things. I was going the easy, lazy way. Although it was a short time being with Christian, I had learn a lot of things from him. He was the engine that started me to get going." It's not hard to help a smart teenager TRANSFORM their life in high school, but it DOES take an exceptionally talented, empathetic and experienced teacher whom students can relate to.
