English Skills with Readings: Examining Paragraphs , a rhetoric/reader/handbook, builds a solid foundation for paragraph writing by breaking down the process into 4 direct, prescriptive steps: unity, support, coherence, and sentence skills.

Presenting good writing as a learnable skill and an attainable goal offers students encouragement. Founded on the premise that mastery of the paragraph should precede the extension of essential writing skills into a longer essay, the text begins with basic principles of composition using paragraph models. After developing the students' ability to support ideas within a variety of paragraph forms, the book extends paragraph writing to essay writing.
