Summary

&>



Research shows that fully integrating reading and writing results in better student performance. From Reading to Writing makes explicit connections between these skills and helps students develop them simultaneously.


Students explore topics, such as using YouTube, the success of Starbucks®, and the newest generation at work, in high-interest reading and writing assignments. In addition, corpus-based vocabulary helps students understand what they read and gives them the words they need for their own writing.


Highlights

  • Contextualized writing models and carefully crafted exercises direct students through the
    writing process.
  • Step-by-step process-writing assignments with peer feedback, editing, and revising help students
    master common academic genres and rhetorical forms.
  • Bridge activities help students make the connection between reading, writing, and vocabulary.
  • MyEnglishLab: Writing (available separately), an online writing component for students to develop their grammar and academic writing skills.
