There are many different ways in which developing writers learn. Winkler and McCuen-Matherall have created a writing series that takes into account many of the known difficulties that developing writing students have with English language skills and strategies. Writing Talk: Sentences & Paragraphs with Readings, 5/e is the first book in a series of two. This text reaches more students by providing the most varied practice exercises of any writing text.nbsp; Every unit contains Practice Exercises, Unit Tests, Unit Talk-Write Exercises, Unit Collaborative Assignments, Unit Writing Assignments, and Photo Writing Assignments. These diverse exercises will help students of all types (including visual, audio, and collaborative learners) learn and retain the material.

Born in Belgium, the daughter of an American minister, Jo Ray had moved from Brussels to Paris to Bern, Switzerland, by the time she was seven years old. In Bern, she attended the Freies Gymnasium and spoke not only fluent French and German but also English, which was the language spoken to her by her American parents. The snow-covered alps and the Swiss penchant for sports were the natural incentive for Jo Ray's love of ice skating, skiing, swimming, and tennis. After enduring World War II, with its ignominious holocaust and heroic feats by the Allies, Jo Ray's parents sent her and her brother to Pacific Union College (in the Napa Valley), where Jo Ray received a B. A. in English. After teaching English and French in high school for several years, Jo Ray started to take night classes at the University of Southern California in order to earn an M.A. and Ph.D., which would allow her to teach in college. While working on her doctorate, she was first hired to teach English at Glendale Community College and later to serve as Dean of the Evening College. A chance meeting in 1973 with Anthony Winkler, a successful novelist whose stories are usually set in Jamaica, led to a literary partnership that has produced fifteen coauthored textbooks used at colleges and universities across the United States.

Every Unit ends with Unit Test, Unit Talk-Write Assignment, Unit Collaborative Assignment, Unit Writing Assignment, & Photo Writing Assignment for this reason it is only listed once in Unit 1
