NELSON is pleased to announce a new publication in English! Interchange: Reading and Writing Critically encourages students to read like a writer and write like a reader. This product was built from the ground up by two educators who are in touch with the needs of today’s students in the classroom. By examining robust, thematically based reading examples throughout each chapter, students improve their critical reading skills and are exposed to examples of good writing as they learn to write effectively themselves. Bring a new and fresh perspective to your students with Interchange, a scaffolded and integrated approach to teaching and learning composition!
