About this title

Synopsis:

PARAGRAPHS AND ESSAYS, International Edition is the higher-level companion to Sentences, Paragraphs, and Beyond in the popular two-level Brandon series. Written in an informal, engaging tone, this easy-to-use text takes students through all the stages of the writing process as they transition from simple to complex writing assignments. A student paragraph and a student essay with stages exemplify each pattern of writing, while new reading instruction offers students the opportunity to analyze readings and to practice the text-based writing required in academic environments. Students master common writing patterns while learning to use texts as a springboard for their own writing in the form of summary, reaction, or response. Sixty-three high-interest, distinctive readings are integrated throughout the Tenth Edition for analysis and as models of good writing. Clear, explicit writing prompts support each reading and focus on text-based, reading-related, cross-curricular, career-related, and general topics. In addition, the photo/art program promotes critical thinking, lively discussion, and analytical writing. The text is flexible in its format, allowing instructors to begin at any stage of instruction and to emphasize the paragraph or the essay, or to mix assignments.
