Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

An outstanding collection of brief essays providing high-interest models of the rhetorical modes, along with beautifully written instruction that demonstrates its own lessons about good writing.

The Norton Sampler is a rhetorically arranged short-essay reader that provides models and guidelines for writing description, narration, and all the other modes of discourse. The readings are brief, reflecting the length of the essays students are required to write.

From classic texts by writers such as Annie Dillard and E. B. White, to contemporary texts from writers like Barack Obama and Marjorie Agosín, The Norton Sampler includes a range of readings that will delight teachers and engage students. Texts from a range of everyday media—from billboards to coffee mugs—demonstrate that the rhetorical modes play an important role in all the writing and reading that we do.

Now with enough writing instruction that students will not need a separate rhetoric.
