America Now makes it easy for you to bring brief, thought-provoking essays into your classroom, with reliable pedagogy and an expert reader's knowledge of what works for students. As series editor for The Best American Essays, Robert Atwan constantly scours a wide range of periodicals, bringing to America Now an unrivaled focus on today's best writing. Instructors tell us that their students want to respond to the essays in the book, and they praise the high-quality reading and writing instruction, critical thinking and reading questions, and model student essays that help them do so. Every current, professional reading in America Now is new to this edition, making it truly a book for today's composition course.
