The first of a two-book series, this new text systematically integrates reading and grammar with basic writing instruction.

Joy Wingersky was born and grew up in Georgia, but she moved to Arizona when she was sixteen. After completing high school, she attended Grand Canyon University where she was active on the newspaper staff and in the drama productions. She was a member of Alpha Psi Omega, an honorary drama fraternity. After she graduated, she started her teaching career at age twenty. While teaching in high school, she completed her Master's at Arizona State University. In 1965, she also set up and taught the first GED classes through the Migrant Opportunity Program, sponsored the debate team, directed the school plays, and organized and sponsored the Thespian Club. During this time, she married and became the mother of three boys. After the birth of her first son, she taught home-bound students and worked with handicapped adults at United Cerebral Palsy during the week and on the weekends set up a program for handicapped adults at North Phoenix Baptist Church. She later returned to school to complete her Ph. D. in English. In 1975, Joy returned to the classroom at Glendale Community College. While there, she helped develop the program for teaching composition in computer labs and helped design the English computer building. As an English composition instructor, she, along with Jan and Diana, designed a Self-Paced, Computerized Delivery of a developmental English program for which they were recognized as "Innovators of the Year." Her interests centered on developmental students, and she has been involved in using Multiple Intelligence with developmental students and remains active in curriculum design for and assessment of developmental students. She has served as assistant chair in the English department, spent many years on the Faculty Senate, and was active in the First-Year Experience involving developmental students. In her spare time, she enjoys working in her back yard where she can watch the hummingbirds that reside there year round.
