In Concert: An Integrated Approach to Reading and Writing engages students by presenting each chapter in the context of a resonant theme, such as overcoming adversity, Internet dating, and the Black Lives Matter movement. Student and professional essays start each chapter and serve as the basis for instruction, illustration, and practice. Author Kathleen McWhorter emphasises critical thinking throughout, which helps to prepare students for their college courses and beyond.

Features & benefits

 

Engage students by teaching in the context of a resonant theme

  • Updated - Read with focus: Student and professional essays, now in all chapters, center around a single chapter theme for greater consistency and understanding.
    • New - Six new professional readings offer more challenging pieces on interesting topics.
    • New - Six new student essays model the longer, more complex style of writing that instructors expect.
    • Revised - Two new themes — social injustice and living in a culturally diverse world — have been added to the Thematic Reader.
  • Extend the theme: Each chapter theme is briefly introduced before the first reading to give context, provide background knowledge, engage students, and direct their attention to important new features.
    • New - Look It Up! prompts students to investigate a theme-related topic on their smartphones, before generating a written response.
    • New - Making Connections Between the Readings is a set of paragraph- and essay-writing activities that provide discussion materials as well as opportunities to compare/contrast readings, analyse the writing feature, and synthesise ideas.

 

Show how reading and writing work in concert

  • Provide extensive coverage of critical thinking: Being prepared for a composition class means being able to think critically and respond — in writing — to what you’ve read.
    • Part Four addresses critical-thinking skills for both reading and writing, including coverage of reading and writing arguments.
    • Thinking and Writing Critically sections follow each professional reading.  
    • Many chapters also contain Thinking Critically About sections that link chapter skills to related critical-thinking skills.
  • Take a metacognitive approach: Both reading and writing are approached as thinking processes — processes in which students read, write, and assess their performance of a task. They are encouraged to recognise, control, evaluate, and adjust how they are reading and writing.
