Expressways: Scenarios for Paragraph and Essay Writing features an integrated reading-writing, critical thinking, and visual literacy approach to teaching academic, workplace, and everyday writing skills.

In addition to covering all of the fundamental topics at the paragraph-to-essay level (the writing process, paragraph and essay writing strategies, and grammar lessons), Kathleen McWhorter appeals to students by connecting the classroom to the real world using visual learning tools, realistic examples of successful writing through student models and high-interest readings, and abundant exercise sets. The text provides comprehensive and integrated coverage of the reading-writing connection, full instruction on the methods of development, editing exercises, collaborative activities, complete MyWritingLab integration with e-text, and a renewed focus on thinking critically and visual literacy.
