Helps students discover and develop their own writing processes
The first in a two-book series on reading and writing comprehension, Mosaics: Reading and Writing Paragraphs seeks to help students build confidence in their personal and academic writing by exploring the relationship among thinking, reading, and writing on progressively more difficult levels.
Acclaimed author Kim Flachmann demonstrates how these skills are integrated at every stage of communication, and encourages students to discover how the “mosaics” of their own reading and writing processes work together to form a coherent whole. The 8th Edition features intuitive reorganization of content, a new design that better supports the material, and a number of new reading selections–helping students prepare for success in college and in their lives after graduation.
