Summary

Connecting students' everyday experiences to different academic disciplines, Catalyst uses a variety of readings as a springboard for writing.

  • Compelling readings on topics such as personalities, the meaning of art, the history of architecture, and the role of sports engage students and act as a catalyst for writing.
  • A balanced approach to writing guides students through the writing process and teaches them the mechanics of good writing.
  • Grammar explanations and exercises woven throughout each chapter help students express their ideas more clearly.
  • Vocabulary exercises introduce high-frequency words students need in their daily lives plus words from the Academic Word List students will encounter in college.
  • A variety of discussion questions encourage students to summarize readings and draw conclusions - essential skills for academic success.
