What does instruction in rhetoric and English courses look like today? The latest edition of John Ruszkiewicz’s rhetoric textbook, How To Write Anything (2012) offers a wide range of answers, drawing upon examples from imaginative work done by assistant instructors and undergraduates at the University of Texas at Austin.

Featured in the book are several multi-media assignments, including Google Maps projects from Sean McCarthy’s RHE 312 Writing in Digital Environments class and Hala Herbly’s E314J Literature Across the Curriculum course. Also included are more than a dozen essays by current or former UT-Austin undergrads. “These model papers illustrate the remarkable talents of our students,” says author Ruszkiewicz. A professor in the Department of Rhetoric and Writing. “They write with clarity and power in every genre and on topics ranging from Toni Morrison and Emily Dickinson to Jimmie Eat World and zombies.”

How To Write Anything is published by Bedford / St. Martin’s Press.
