NEW EDITION December 2011
Completely rewritten with new chapters, new diagrams throughout, new student work examples, and a companion web page that shows many of the book's figures in color.
Among many new ideas we show how to use the iPad to read and write visual texts.
In one research strategy, called recomposing, Steve shows how to summarize paragraphs of information not as a heap of "interesting facts" but as a diagram. The diagram can then work as a framework for students to follow when writing an essay. This overcomes the teacher's problem of "cut and paste" essays, and, by following their own diagram-summary, students have an answer to their familiar questions, "Where do I start? What do I write next?"
