Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a reading professor, I appreciate how well FUSION walks students through the writing process in general, and for each writing pattern specifically. It scaffolds my teaching and helps me feel more confident as I move from teaching 'stand alone' reading classes to integrated reading and writing classes."

"I selected FUSION after seeing an early version and noting that the opening approach was in reading, with several opportunities to write responses and open a solid foundation based on reading/comprehension as a process. I also experienced very dedicated support from my Cengage rep and others who worked with her and with us to make sure that our faculty had resources and information."
