This version of   Envision in Depth Reading, Writing, and Researching Arguments has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*


Research-based writing through practical examples

Envision in Depth: Reading, Writing, and Researching Arguments  encourages students to look at an issue or idea from a new perspective through the process of analysis, argument, source evaluation, and research-based essay writing. This compact, colorful text for argument and research employs visual culture as an intuitive way into rhetoric and writing. Because of its authentic examples, fresh readings, and thorough instruction, students will enjoy learning to read, analyze, and argue about a range of written and visual texts relevant to our contemporary culture.

* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
