About the Book

Moving Beyond the Page: A Reader for Writing and Thinking is a comprehensive, broadly based collection of fiction and non-fiction pieces intended to help students new to the discipline develop skills in literary analysis. This pedagogically rich volume features 40 classic and contemporary selections by Canadian and international writers from a wide range of literary, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Each reading is accompanied by a set of learning tools meant to prepare students for the essay or story they are about to read and help them connect to it on a personal level. Following each reading, comprehension and analysis exercises, along with definitions of select terms and idioms, familiarize students with more challenging words and encourage further reflection. With a rich variety of selections and an abundance of pedagogical tools throughout, Moving Beyond the Page is an indispensable resource that will truly engage students in the multi-layered processes of reading, writing, and thinking.

Readership: The book is designed as a core text for college-level courses in introductory composition, taken primarily by non-English majors. Typical course titles include Introduction to Reading and Writing, Introduction to Composition and Style, Introduction to Language and Literature, and Essay Writing and Short Prose Selections.
