In Harmony is one of two titles in a new first edition series written for the integrated Reading/Writing Developmental English course by an author who is an expert in both fields of study - Kathleen McWhorter. In Harmony, the first book in the series, correlates to the introductory developmental reading level and the sentence to paragraph developmental writing level. The text begins with separate overviews of the reading and writing processes and then offers two full chapters on vocabulary. Each chapter becomes progressively more integrated so that students are consistently combining basic reading skills with sentence level and paragrpah level writing. A brief grammar handbook and ESL guide for non-native speakers are contained in sections at the back of the book for easy reference and student guidance. Each chapter contains both a student essay and a professional essay followed by writing prompts in the text and repeated in a MySkillsLab module for online homework completion.
