Reading-Writing Connection eBooks

Reading-Writing Plus includes full e-books of both of our acclaimed titles: The Reading-Writing Connection and The Advanced Reading-Writing Connection. eBooks are accessed inside the Learning Center and include bookmarking, highlighting, and note-taking capabilities.


The Readings Bank

Reading-Writing Plus comes with 15 new readings complete with Lexile scores and reading comprehension and writing assignments. These readings retain the same lively, high-interest quality of our books. See for yourself today with your instructor account. Don’t have one? Visit www.townsendpress.net and create one.


The Skills Bank

Want to teach a unit on main ideas? Looking to offer a learning module on inferences? Need students in your co-requisite class to brush up on supporting details? The Skills Bank makes it easy. Featuring the full array of online exercises and tests from our companion Ten Steps Series, the Skills Bank lets you choose the skill(s), level(s), and sequence you want to teach.
