Thank you, Anna Mills, for your vision, energy, expertise, collaboration and service in creating and sharing How Arguments Work! This is a powerful addition to the composition class, particularly as a means of equity pedagogy - developing critical thinking, argumentation and writing for students who have often been left our of the academic conversation. You are inviting them in with a high-rigor and high-support text. My students are responding so powerfully to the book! The field, and our wonderful students, in particular are so well served by your contribution and service! Thank you! Sarah Sullivan Mission College Santa Clara, CA.

Anna Mills' How Argument Works is a comprehensive and equitable guide to everything your students should know to do well in first-year writing courses. It's informative and useful without being excessively wordy, it's dynamic, and it teaches students the moves that matter in writing (definitely finding some inspiration in They Say/I Say while also striking out on its own). What makes this an especially valuable resource are the Canvas tools and supplemental information that comes with it. Helpful for students AND teachers.
