About this item

For courses in Developmental Writing.


Helps students discover and refine their own writing processes

The Mosaicsseries illustrates how reading and writing are part of an interrelated process, and builds students’ confidence as it transitions them from personal writing to more academic writing. Acclaimed author Kim Flachmann demonstrates how these skills are integrated at every stage of communication, and encourages students to discover how the “mosaics” of their own reading and writing processes work together to form a coherent whole. By exploring the relationship among thinking, reading, and writing on progressively more difficult levels, the series helps prepare students for success in college throughout the curriculum and in their lives after graduation.


Each of the three books of the Mosaics series has a different emphasis: Sentences, Paragraphs, and Essays.Mosaics: Reading and Writing Paragraphshighlights sentence development–helping students move from personal to more academic writing and become gradually more sophisticated in the length and level of their reading selections, the complexity of their writing assignments, the degree of difficulty of their revising and editing strategies, and the content and structure of their student writing samples.
