Helps students discover and refine their own writing processes
The Mosaics series illustrates how reading and writing are part of an interrelated process, and builds students’ confidence as it transitions them from personal writing to more academic writing. 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. By exploring the relationship among thinking, reading, and writing on progressively more difficult levels, the series helps prepare students for success in college throughout the curriculum and in their lives after graduation.
Each of the three books of the Mosaics series has a different emphasis: Sentences, Paragraphs, and Essays. Mosaics: Reading and Writing Essays increases the level of sophistication in the length and level of reading selections, the complexity of writing assignments, the degree of difficulty in revising and editing strategies, and the content and structure of student writing samples.
