Long DescriptionFrom answering the question "Why teach writing?" to offering guidance in managing group work and responding to assignments, this remarkably successful text provides a comprehensive introduction to the teaching of writing. Now updated to incorporate the latest developments in the field, A Rhetoric for Writing Teachers describes in straightforward terms the cross-disciplinary scholarship that has reinvigorated composition teaching. Reflecting current views of writing as social interaction, this edition emphasizes workshops, collaborative learning, and holistic evaluation. Chapters on prewriting techniques, organizing material, paragraphing, sentence structure, words, and revising describe how the teacher can guide students through composing, while sections on rhetoric, cognition, and linguistics discuss theoretical principles that support classroom practices and make the teacher's performance effective. Treating both the theory and practice of writing, the author encourages teachers to adopt the methods that best meet their students' needs and to develop a style of teaching informed by knowledgeable decisions. Over forty percent of the text's material is new to this edition, offering composition scholars a broad range of techniques to encourage and motivate their students. Complete with an updated bibliography and a table of important dates in the history of composition, this classic work offers both prospective and seasoned writing teachers convenient access to recent scholarship in the field and inspires them to examine what it means to teach well.

Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (ASINs) are unique blocks of 10 letters and/or numbers that identify items. You can find the ASIN on the item's product information page on Amazon.ca and in the URL for the page.

The quickest way to find your product's ASIN is to look in your browser's address bar. Copy the number that appears after the item name and "dp" in the address:

ASINs are unique identifiers that are assigned by Amazon to products used in the Amazon realm of companies. Often times the same product could have different ASINs when accessed from Amazon web sites for different countries even though the product has the same EAN number on both sites.

Books that have a 10 digit ISBN number will use that as their ASIN for the most part. But products that are not books or even books that only have 13 digit EAN numbers need to have a shorter 10 digit ASIN number assigned to them. This pattern most likely comes from the fact that Amazon started out as an online book store and then expanded so keeping the 10 digit identification code makes a lot of sense.

Because the ASIN can be both digits and letters, it is very easy to store many more product identifiers with 10 characters than the 13 digit only EAN number could while saving a lot of space in their database system over millions of products.

If you know the ASIN of a product, you can quickly look that product up on any of the Amazon sites by placing the ASIN into the URL. The pattern is the domain name, slash, dp, slash, ASIN. A trailing slash is optional.

When possible, we at EANdata.com try to connect our dat to both the EAN and the ASIN because so many products are available on Amazon for sale and offer more information and our goal is always to get the end user as much informationa bout a product as we possibly can. So naturally, if we can link to this information we would. We will even allow searching of our data using the ASIN number in addition to searching by UPC, EAN or ISBN.

To learn more about the ASIN numbers and how they work, please visit Amazon or WikipediA.
