ESL Readers and Writers in Higher Education describes the challenges ESL students in U.S. postsecondary institutions face when studying in a second language, and offers suggestions for how teachers, advisors, tutors, and institutions might provide support that meets the reading and writing needs of this very important student population. Because the ESL profession as a whole, including what professionals are doing in the classroom, sits under the umbrella of an institutional response to a language-related challenge, some solutions aimed at helping students achieve optimal proficiency lie outside of the classroom. As such, this book is based on the assertion that language development support is not the sole responsibility of language teachers. Everyone on campuses that hosts ESL students bears some responsibility for these students' language development. Chapters are therefore, intentionally adapted to appeal to a wide variety of readers from classroom teachers, and teachers in training, to admissions officers, academic advisors, and international student advisors.

Part of the Penguin Academics Series, Rhetorical Choices is a rhetorically-organized reader whose selections and apparatus encourage students to pay attention to the social and rhetorical dimensions of language and writing. The exploration of these dimensions throughout the book also helps students to see the power of writing and the lifelong benefits of writing well. Through its choice of readings and pedagogical elements throughout the book, Rhetorical Choices stresses more than any other reader the idea that writers are always making choices and that these choices always occur in a particular social, political, and cultural context.
