Helps students become powerful, insightful writers and readers
Making Sense with Integrated Reading and Writing takes a comprehensive approach to English mastery, combining both reading and writing instruction into one seamless resource. The text is relevant and engaging, empowering students to recognize and learn from the inherent connection between reading critically and writing well.
The approach of Making Sense is based on the premise that language is used to construct knowledge and to interact with others. This approach proposes that both readers and writers must organize thoughts, infer and construct ideas, and revise meaning recursively in both the processes of reading and writing.
The authors explore these ideas through challenging, authentic readings that inspire students to reach new levels of understanding, and by encouraging students to ask hard and unique questions (How do I learn? Why do I think this way?) Comprehension questions that follow the readings guide students through basic understanding to inference and analysis; these written responses often become the basis for longer and more challenging writing assignments.
