Description

Skill Set: Strategies for Reading and Writing in the Canadian Classroom, Second Edition is designed to help students build vocabulary, grammar, writing, and editing skills while improving their reading and comprehension. Skill Set guides students from basic writing skills through the five-paragraph essay. Part I uses clear, straightforward explanations of how to avoid and correct common problems. This approach helps students develop the ability and confidence to express themselves in writing. Skill-strengthening exercises reinforce the material by encouraging students to apply the lessons they have learned. Part II contains fiction and non-fiction readings, updated for this edition. Each reading is accompanied by comprehension and discussion questions, exercises, and assignment suggestions. These features will help students to acquire important skills, such as using rhetorical techniques and recognizing the difference between conversational and academic writing.
