For Developmental English, Basic Skills or Remedial Writing courses, or low-level Freshman Composition. Mosaics: Focusing on Essays 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 Essays 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.

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.

About the Author:

In her own words, this is how Kim Flachmann describes her academic life story and devotion to students and teaching:

 

“I am a St. Louis kid who moved west and fell in love with California. My passion is teaching writing and helping people understand its importance in our society today.

 

I earned my B.A. in English at Washington University in my hometown and then started teaching at Morton College in Chicago, where I began a Developmental Writing program in 1969. Three years later, I came to California State University, Bakersfield, where I currently direct the Writing Program. I enjoy teaching writing through my books and my classes.

 

I can’t imagine any mission more important to the success of a society than literacy. Teaching people who to understand words they encounter and how to express their most cherished ideas can relieve their personal frustration, rejuvenate their self-esteem, provide them with skills they need to succeed, and ultimately raise the quality of all our lives. I feel truly privileged to be involved in such a life-changing passion.”
