The Seventh Edition of Patterns Plus features 88 short selections. Arranged rhetorically, each chapter covers a different pattern of development reinforced by extensive guidance, as well as sample paragraphs and essays. Two alternative tables of contents (Thematic and Writing Across the Curriculum) provide instructors with the flexibility to choose readings according to their own lesson plan and students' needs.

  • The introductory chapter provides in-depth treatment of the writing process plus more discussion of collaborative writing.
  • Internet-based assignments encourage students to access the Web to research and then write about a range of topics.

About the Author:

Mary Lou Conlin completed her education at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, earning a B.A. and M.A. in English, and a Ph.D. in education with concentrations in special education, reading, and curriculum. Conlin worked for over twenty-five years teaching English Composition and developing curriculum for developmental reading and writing at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio. She developed individualized reading and writing instruction, and also established a Learning Center staffed with instructional assistants and tutors who provided both individual and small group instruction. In addition, Conlin developed computer-assisted instruction and tracking in the early 1980s.Her publications include PATTERNS, PATTERNS PLUS, CONCEPTS OF COMMUNICATION: WRITING, and CONCEPTS OF COMMUNICATION: READING. The Concepts texts, a modular series, became the basis for the individualized program provided through the Learning Center. Other publications include SIMON PERKINS OF THE WESTERN RESERVE, a biography of an early land agent of the Western Reserve published by the Western Reserve Historical Society.

Review:

"I do plan to continue using PATTERNS PLUS. It's in step with my philosophy of teaching with developmental writing, and its reading and apparatus make it a good choice for the nature of the threshold course in which we use it. I still see it as the best text on the market for this level."
