Instructors who have used Signs of Life in the USA know that students love to talk and write about popular culture. They can attest that it teaches students to read and write critically about pop culture by providing them with a conceptual framework: semiotics, a field of study developed specifically for the interpretation of culture and its signs.

Signs of Life is written by a prominent semiotician and an experienced writing instructor, and it has been extensively updated to account for the rapid evolution of contemporary trends and student interests. It features insightful themes with provocative and current reading selections that ask students to think analytically about America's popular culture: How has niche advertising been used to develop a highly detailed profile of your consumer habits? Why are Americans so transfixed by "bad guys"? Signs of Life bridges the transition to college writing by providing students with academic language to talk about the significance of our shared cultural experiences.

And now with the new edition, you can meet students where they are: online. Our newest set of online materials, LaunchPad Solo, provides all the key tools and course-specific content that you need to teach your class.

Biografía del autor:

The coeditors are successful textbook authors who, between them, have over fifty years of teaching experience in the college classroom. Sonia Maasik, a lecturer in the UCLA Writing Programs, has taught writing from developmental to advanced levels, and coordinates training for UCLA writing programs' teaching assistants. Jack Solomon, a professor of English at California State University, Northridge, teaches literature and critical theory, along with his graduate and undergraduate classes on popular cultural semiotics, and is often interviewed by the media for analysis of current events and trends. He is the author of The Signs of Our Time (1988) and Discourse and Reference in the Nuclear Age (1988). The two together have published Signs of Life in the U.S.A.: Readings on Popular Culture for Writers, Sixth Edition (Bedford/St. Martin's, 2009) and California Dreams and Realities, Third Edition (Bedford/St. Martin s, 2005)."
