Language Awareness has long recognized the power of language and helped students understand and use that power critically and carefully as they make rhetorical choices about their own academic writing. The text provides extensive support for writing, while its relevant and engaging readings grouped into topics—such as community, discrimination, conflict, and gender—explore the pervasive influence of language on our lives.

“Language in Action” activities connect the everyday and the academic by examining current texts and visuals to enhance students’ understanding of the readings. This thriving book has now been revised with input from reviewers across the country to include fresh new readings and updated instruction that invites students into the conversation about the power of language.

“The emphasis on language use is what sets this book above the rest in my opinion. The readings are tailor-made for engaging students in discussions about the writing process in an interesting and meaningful way.” –Erin Presley, Eastern Kentucky University
