Book Description: Between Worlds is a thematically-organized collection of readings, a process-oriented rhetoric, and a concise handbook. The text features over 70 readings - - essays, short stories, poems, and a play - - centered around the theme of "between-ness." Students can explore the concept of being caught between generations, living with diverse cultures, dealing with gender conflicts, exploring multiple perceptions of self and others, and accepting or rejecting others' values. The rhetoric section traces several students' work through the recursive prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing processes and covers the rhetorical strategies using student and professional essays as models. Between Worlds emphasizes the importance of reading, critical thinking, and analysis in all writing assignments. A re-search chapter with information on using and documenting electronic sources is also included.
