Each unit opens with Learning Outcomes and pre-learning activities that guide students in the use of predicting, questioning, and setting a purpose for learning.
Students engage in multiple levels of learning for each concept through a detailed explanation, a illustrative example, one or more practice exercises, two review tests, a final review, and reading/writing assignments to offer a stair-case of learning complexity.
High interest topics engage students and build on their prior knowledge that is relevant to their academic, personal, and career lives.
Students experience the power of a well-organized text to convey a message as they are immersed in the analysis of text structure from academic to professional texts that span patterns of organization and genres.
Rich visuals and interactive learning exercises illustrate skills, stimulate writing activities, and help students to "see" the concepts clearly.
Each Student Edition comes with one-year access to MySkillsLab with eText for personalized, accelerated, and adaptive reading and writing remediation!
