For Developmental English, Basic Skills or Remedial Writing courses, or low-level Freshman Composition. Mosaics: Focusing on Paragraphs in Context illustrates how the companion skills of reading and writing are parts of a larger, interrelated process that moves back and forth through the tasks of prereading and reading, prewriting and writing, and revising and editing. Experience tells us that students have the best chance of succeeding in college if they learn how to respond productively to the varying academic demands made on them throughout the curriculum. One extremely important part of this process is being able to analyze ideas and think critically about issues in many different subject areas. Mosaics: Focusing on Paragraphs in Context encourages students to discover how the mosaics of their own reading and writing processes work together to form a coherent whole. By demonstrating the interrelationship among thinking, reading, and writing on progressively more difficulty levels, Mosaics promises to help prepare students for success in college throughout the curriculum.
