Acclaimed instructor and author Kim Flachmann capitalizes on the growing trend of studying reading to sharpen writing skills. Throughout the text, students are shown the interrelationship among thinking, reading, and writing as they move back and forth through the tasks of pre-reading and reading, prewriting and writing, and revising and editing. Reading strategies are introduced in Chapter 1 and then integrated throughout the text. Meanwhile, as they are employing these reading strategies, students learn from their own writing–revising and editing their own writing.
Mosaics illustrates how thinking, reading, and writing are part of a interrelated process, and encourages students to discover how the “mosaics” of their own thinking, reading, and writing processes work together to form a coherent whole.
