We have been delighted by the overwhelmingly positive response to the first eleven editions of Patterns, and we continue to be gratified by positive feedback from the many instructors who find Patterns to be the most accessible and the most pedagogically sound rhetoric-reader they have ever used. In preparing this twelfth edition, we have worked hard to fine-tune the features that have made Patterns the most popular composition reader available today and to develop new features to enhance the book’s usefulness for both instructors and students. What Instructors and Students Like about Patterns for College Writing An Emphasis on Critical Reading The Introduction, “How to Use This Book,” and Chapter 1, “Reading to Write: Becoming a Critical Reader,” prepare students to become analytical readers and writers by showing them how to apply critical reading strategies to a typical selection and by providing sample responses to the various kinds of writing prompts in the book. Not only does this material introduce students to the book’s features, but it also prepares them to tackle reading and writing assignments in their other courses. Extensive Coverage of the Writing Process The remaining chapters in Part One, “The Writing Process” (Chapters 2 through 5), comprise a “mini-rhetoric,” offering advice on drafting, writing, revising, and editing as they introduce students to activities such as freewriting, brainstorming, clustering, and journal writing. These chapters also include numerous writing exercises to give students opportunities for immediate practice. Detailed Coverage of the Patterns of Development In Part Two, “Readings for Writers,” Chapters 6 through 14 explain and illustrate the patterns of development that students typically use in their college writing assignments: narration, description, exemplification, vii 00_KIR_67684_FM_i_xl.indd vii Achorn International 11/18/2011 11:40PM viii   Preface process, cause and effect, comparison and contrast, classification and division, definition, and argumentation. Each chapter begins with a comprehensive introduction that presents a definition and a paragraph-length example of the pattern to be discussed and then explains the particular writing strategies and applications associated with it. Next, each chapter analyzes one or two annotated student essays to show how the pattern can be used in particular college writing situations. Chapter 15, “Combining the Patterns,” illustrates how the various patterns of development discussed in Chapters 6 through 14 can work together in an essay. A Diverse and Popular Selection of Readings Varied in subject, style, and cultural perspective, the sixty-nine professional selections engage students while providing them with outstanding models for writing. We have tried to achieve a balance between classic authors (George Orwell, Jessica Mitford, E. B. White, Martin Luther King Jr.) and newer voices (Sherman Alexie, Amy Chua, Amanda Brown) so that instructors have a broad range of readings to choose from. More Student Essays Than Any Comparable Text To provide students with realistic models for improving their own writing, we include sixteen sample student essays (one new to this edition). These essays are available as transparency masters so that instructors can use them more effectively in the classroom. They can also be downloaded from the Patterns for College Writing companion Web site, bedfordstmartins .com/patterns. Helpful Coverage of Grammar Issues Grammar in Context boxes in chapter introductions offer specific advice on how to identify and correct the grammar, mechanics, and punctuation problems that students are likely to encounter when they work with particular patterns of development. Practice exercises for mastering these grammar skills are available on Re:Writing , a comprehensive online exercise collection accessible at the Patterns companion Web site. Apparatus Designed to Help Students Learn Each professional essay in the text is followed by four types of questions. These questions are designed to help students assess their understanding of the essay’s content and of the writer’s purpose and audience; to recognize the stylistic and structural techniques used to shape the essay; and to become sensitive to the nuances of language. Each essay is also accompanied by a Journal Entry prompt, Writing Workshop topics (suggestions for full-length writing assignments), and Thematic Connections that identify 00_KIR_67684_FM_i_xl.indd viii Achorn International 11/18/2011 11:40PM Preface   ix related readings in the text. Also following each essay is a Combining the Patterns feature that focuses on different patterns of development used in the essay and possible alternatives to these patterns. Each chapter ends with a list of Writing Assignments and a Collaborative Activity. Many of these assignments and activities have been updated to reflect the most current topics as well as the most up-to-date trends and sites available on the Web. Extensive Cultural and Historical Background for All Readings In addition to a biographical headnote, each reading is preceded by a headnote containing essential background information to help students make connections between the reading and the historical, social, and economic forces that shaped it. An Introduction to Visual Texts Every rhetorical chapter includes a visual text — such as a photograph, a piece of fine art, or panels from a graphic novel — that provides an acces­ sible introduction to each rhetorical pattern. Apparatus that helps students discuss the pattern in its visual form follows each image. Thorough Coverage of Working with Sources “Part Three: Working with Sources” takes students through the process of writing a research paper and includes a model student paper in MLA style. (The Appendix addresses APA style and includes a model APA paper.) What’s New in This Edition Engaging New Readings The twenty-seven new professional essays treat topics of current interest. Deborah L. Rhode discusses “Why Looks Are the Last Bastion of Discrimination,” Paul H. Rubin makes a surprising case for “Environmentalism as Religion,” and Maria Hinojosa, in “A Supreme Sotomayor: How My Country Has Caught Up to Me,” shows how one judicial appointment has ramifications for all Latinas. In all cases, readings have been carefully selected for their high-interest subject matter as well as for their effectiveness as teachable models for student writing. Argumentation Chapter Updated The argumentation chapter now includes two new debates (“Are Internships Fair to Students?” and “Should American Citizenship Be a Birthright?”) and two new casebooks (“How Can We Address the Shortage of Organ Donors?” and “Should Government Tax Sugary Drinks?”). 00_KIR_67684_FM_i_xl.indd ix Achorn International 11/18/2011 11:40PM x   Preface More Support for Critical Reading A new introductory chapter, “Reading to Write: Becoming a Critical Reader,” explains and illustrates the process of previewing, annotating, and summarizing and includes examples and exercises for active learning. More Help with Research Coverage of research has been expanded, with three full chapters in the new Part Three devoted to finding, evaluating, and integrating sources; avoiding plagiarism; and documenting sources in MLA style. Part Three includes exercises to help students practice their research skills as they learn. An Appendix, “Documenting Sources: APA,” explains APA style and includes a model student paper.

Grant and Lee
1. Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865
Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met in the parlor of the Appomattox Court House on
April 9, 1865, to discuss the terms of surrender of Lee’s army (Kirszner & Mandell, 2012). Due
to the surrender of Lee’s army, it meant that the Confederates’ army was surrendering and the
American Civil war was to come to an end.
2. Robert E. Lee’s Aristocracy and Ulysses S. Grant’s opposite
Lee was born in Virginia. In the state of Virginia aristocracy was the way fo the
government and he was brought in it. On the other hand, Grant was born in the west where he
was brought up to work in order to provide and survive.

ridden from the old age of chivalry.
