Based on the belief that those studying basic or developmental English should be reading, writing, and learning grammarat the same time rather than separately this book offers a wide range of materials that meet the multiple needs of basic writers.Three books in one, it provides 1) a comprehensive writing skills text and workbook for developmental English; 2) an anthology of acclaimed reading selections of enduring literary value edited and annotated for basic writers; and 3) a vocabulary builder with vocabulary exercises based on words in the readings. Exposes readers to the classics written by a diverse range of authors -- i.e., works of enduring value by acclaimed authors such as Aesop Shakespeare, Thoreau, Cervantes, and works of modern writers such as Richard Wright, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Maya Angelou that are likely to become classics in the future. Utilizes the “double-correction method” integrated with coverage of the writing and editing process to give readers an individualized means of learning from past errors. Features two chapters for ESL writers:English Idioms for ESL Writers andAdvice for ESL Writers . For anyone wanting solid instruction in basic writing, remedial or developmental English, or English as a Second Language.
