Editorial Reviews

Review

"Has excellent readings for all the rhetorical methods, and each rhetorical mode is developed well. The grammar section of the text is by far one of the most comprehensive sections, yet seems to be easily understood by most students. Paragraphs and Essays fulfills the goals and objectives to get to the next level without frightening the students."

"Has a greater variety of examples and types of topics than other texts I've used. I like the progression from reading the variety of professionally and student-written examples to the variety of topics for assignments."

"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."

The book was in condition, it had writing in it, but not too much. The book itself explains English as if you are still in the sixth grade. It is jammed with fill in the blank and other activities. A bit boring, but a good refresher class.
