SENTENCES, PARAGRAPHS, AND BEYOND is the first in the popular two-level Brandon series. Written in an informal, engaging tone, this easy-to-use text incorporates sentence-level grammar and mechanics with in-depth instruction in the writing process and patterns of writing. Reading instruction offers students the opportunity to analyze readings and practice the reading-based writing required in academic environments. Students will master common writing patterns while learning to use texts as a springboard for their own writing in the form of summary, reaction, or response. High-interest, distinctive readings are integrated throughout the Sixth Edition for analysis and as models of good writing. Clear, explicit writing prompts support each reading and focus on reading-based, cross-curricular, career-related, and general topics. In addition, the photo/art program promotes critical thinking, lively discussion, and analytical writing. Flexibility of instruction permits instructors to emphasize the paragraph or the essay, or to mix units.

"Is the best textbook I've found for developmental writing classes. The logical development from parts of speech through the essay makes sense for me and my students."
"I think the reading-centered writing is very useful in providing form and techniques for the students. This approach helps the students create an awareness of using models of writing and putting their own style (voice) into a particular form. I believe that providing clear forms and models gives our students something concrete to build on."
