Overview

For courses in Integrated Reading and Writing at the paragraph/essay level.


Integrated thematic instruction at the paragraph and essay level

In Concert: An Integrated Approach to Reading and Writing engages readers by presenting each chapter in the context of a resonant theme, such as overcoming adversity, Internet dating, and the Black Lives Matter movement. Student and professional essays start each chapter and serve as the basis for instruction, illustration, and practice. Author Kathleen McWhorter emphasizes critical thinking throughout, which helps to prepare learners for their future courses or careers.


In Concert, Third Edition, is the second book in a two߭part series that shows reading and writing as a single process of understanding and expressing ideas – and how they really do work together in concert. This volume explores paragraphs and essays; In Harmony concentrates on sentences and paragraphs.
