A unique and well-loved text for the AP Language course, this best-selling combination argument text and thematically organized reader shows students how to analyze all kinds of arguments — not just essays and editorials, but clothes, smartphone apps, ads, and Web site designs — and then how to use what they learn to write their own effective arguments. Its signature engaging and jargon-free instruction emphasizes cultural currency, humor, and visual argument. The 7th edition, revised based on feedback from its large and devoted community of users, offers a new chapter on multimedia argument and more than 35 readings across perspectives and genres, from academic essays and newspaper editorials to tweets and infographics. Students love Everything’s an Argument because it helps them understand how a world of argument already surrounds them; instructors love it because it helps students construct their own personally meaningful arguments about that world. Also available in a variety of e-book formats
