Reading, Reasoning, and Writing

Professor James Crosswhite explains the writing process in the UO writing classroom in this brief 21-page booklet. Covering ideas including how to read well, how to find questions that matter, how to form and use a reasoned thesis (or enthymeme), how to address counter-arguments, and how to organize and arrange an argument, this text offers an overview of the central ideas of WR 121, WR 122 and WR 123.
