      This text is designed for a first-year composition course intended for English 1A students. It is divided into 11 chapters, dedicated to addressing different aspects of the writing process from critical reading strategies and developing cohesive essays to writing the academic research paper. Each chapter can be utilized separately or in conjunction with other chapters. The last chapter is a database of texts for supplemental college-level reading and writing integration.
