- Binding: Paperback
- Publish Date: 2003-08-01
This is a textbook for college and university classes in discipline-based composition. Grounded in contemporary genre theory, this text provides practical ideas about how to develop a sophisticated research paper. It respectfully addresses undergraduate students as apprentice scholars, thus departing from journalistic approaches to composition. Designs for Disciplines contains ample instructional commentary, and is also a reader. In most cases, discussion material in each chapter is supplemented by a selection of sample essays.
