Summary

Paragraphs and Essays with Integrated Readings--the higher level of Lee Brandon's two-level series that also includesSentences, Paragraphs, and Beyond--provides extensive writing instruction in a fun, engaging manner. Written in Lee Brandon's unique style and voice, the text incorporates coverage of reading, a three-stage writing process, and in-depth instruction on different essay patterns. The last chapter (Chapter 16) covers research writing; and a Handbook section provides grammar, mechanics, and punctuation review for students to brush up on their skills. New to this edition are 12 full-color photographs that provide writing prompts for student essays, a wide variety of brand-new readings, and new "Mindset" features that emphasize key concepts and point to additional exercises on the accompanying Online Study Center. Also new to this edition is Lee Brandon's co-author, son Kelly Brandon, who also teaches developmental writing. Strong emphasis on the writing process covers three separate stages of writing. Three chapters cover the writing process in detail: the exploring, experimenting, and gathering information stage; writing the controlling idea, organizing, and developing support stage; and writing, revising, and editing. Engaging writing samples by both professionals and students are integrated throughout the text. This edition incorporates more examples of text-based writing and stresses the importance of locating and qualifying sources, as well as incorporating and documenting sources. Intriguing topics such as cheating on papers, low-wage jobs, flirting, and the dangers of steroids, engage students' interest; paired readings in several chapters encourage critical thinking about the pros and cons of an issue. New!Writing across the disciplines and in the workplace is emphasized in every chapter. Every chapter begins with a consideration of how a particular type of writing can be helpful in college courses across the curriculum, as well as in the workplace. New!Application exercises are now linked with four-color photographs to provide critical thinking opportunities as well as writing prompts. These Application exercises can be used for individual or group consideration and discussion, or assigned as essay topics. The effective pedagogy includes a number of student exercises in every chapter for immediate review of chapter concepts; writing process worksheets to help students develop their essays; many annotated readings; and suggested writing topics. New to this edition are special features that point students to the Online Study Center, which contains self-study quizzes with immediate feedback and rejoinders for every chapter and "Mindset" features that provide additional questions and suggestions before many of the readings. A handbook of grammar, mechanics, and punctuation helps students refresh their understanding of parts of speech, sentence structure, and mechanics such as spelling and punctuation. Also included in the handbook is a brief guide for ESL students, with additional information on subjects such as idioms.
