Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The 3rd Edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter--and free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.

With a mix of humor and analysis, a collection of fresh readings, engaging assignments, and an enticing design, Remix is not your ordinary textbook. It asks students to re-examine everyday concepts (such as identity, entertainment, and technology), to question assumptions about everyday life and culture, and to respond critically and creatively to some of the most imaginative projects you’ll find in a composition reader. Built on the idea that students live in a do-it-yourself world in which they are writers, designers, and inventors of identity and culture, Remix invites students to bring their own creativity into the composition classroom. It inspires them to ask: Why do I think the way I do? What is my relationship to the culture around me? This inquiry-based approach allows students to write about culture and identity in a meaningful way.
