In Concert, the second book in the series, integrates intermediate reading instruction with paragraph to essay developmental writing support. The text begins with separate overviews of the reading and writing processes and then each chapter becomes progressively more integrated so that students are consistently combining their reading and writing skills. Vocabulary workshops are included early in the text and a grammar handbook is located at the back of the text to offer students handles on these critical basic skills. Each chapter contains both a student essay and a professional essay followed by writing prompts in the and repeated in a MySkillsLab module for extra practice and enrichment.
