FUSION: INTEGRATED READING AND WRITING, Book 2 is a developmental English book for reading and writing at the essay level. It connects the reading and writing processes so that they are fully reciprocal and reinforcing, using parallel strategies that guide students in analyzing reading to generate writing. FUSION teaches critical reading strategies in conjunction with the shared writing traits, such as main idea, details, and organization, and teaches the types of writing (including research) that students will encounter in their future courses. Grammar instruction is integrated in authentic writing, using high-interest professional and student models. Based on reviewers' and users' input, the second edition has been significantly revised and honed to better meet the needs of instructors teaching the course.
