Wardle’s Writing about Writing 4th edition (PDF/ePub) has enabled tens of thousands of students to evaluate preconceptions about writing and research how writing works since its initial release. It accomplishes this by making writing the object of study. The textbook Writing About Writing includes “threshold concepts” regarding writing, which are key principles that authors must comprehend in order to grow, which is unique to Wardle and Downs‘ method. College students can translate their comprehension of these threshold concepts to each writing circumstance they encounter as they gain a greater understanding of them.
Based on feedback from instructors who have used the textbook, the latest new Fourth Edition has been updated and improved. A new Part One explains the value of investigating writing, introduces threshold concepts and the notion of transfer, details the elements of the genre and rhetorical reading, and provides a guide for conducting writing studies research at an undergraduate level, with more explicit instruction to support academic writers. The readings chapters have been revised and condensed, and they are accompanied by introductions, scaffolded questions, and activities, as in previous versions.
