Description:

PARAGRAPHS AND ESSAYS WITH INTEGRATED READINGS is the higher-level companion to SENTENCES, PARAGRAPHS, AND BEYOND in the two-book Brandon series. Instruction in this text -- comprehensive, flexible, and relevant -- is predicated on the idea that reading and writing are linked and that good writing is the product of revision and rigorous editing. The hallmarks of the Brandons' books are tell-show-engage instruction, ample demonstrations of good professional and student writing, and an abundance of reading-based, high-interest general, cross-curricular, and career-related topics and prompts. Reading-based writing provides experience in critical thinking that enables students to write competently across the disciplines and transition smoothly to the next level of the English program. The technology package includes Aplia(tm) -- with interactive homework that helps students master concepts -- and MindTap, a fully online, customizable learning experience built on the text's content.
