For grades levels 9–10.

This program integrates basic reading support with sentence to paragraph level writing. Beginning with overviews of the reading and writing processes and two full chapters on vocabulary, each chapter becomes progressively more integrated so that students are consistently combining skills for more comprehensive mastery. A brief grammar handbook and ESL guide are included at the back of the book for easy reference and student guidance. Each chapter contains both a student essay and a professional essay followed by writing prompts in the text and repeated in a MySkillsLab® module for extra practice and enrichment.
