Literature: Reading to Write masterfully weaves critical thinking skills, writing, and reading instruction using writing prompts, literary selections, and intriguing discussion points. Students transition from active readers to critical writers through a series of reading prompts and unique writing exercises. This process helps students find meaning in a broader context by forging connections between literature and their personal experiences. Additionally, the book features an eclectic array of classic and contemporary voices in literature as well as sections devoted to newer genres such as graphic novels. This interactive approach leaves students with the knowledge and confidence to write research papers and essays that are thought-provoking, engaging, and authentic to their true writing voice.
