Five genres, each in three levels, let students study a particular kind of writing at the appropriate reading level. Emphasis on reading skills helps students who have difficulty with a traditional literature anthology. Integration of reading and writing encourages students to study how authors construct their works and then to try to emulate stylistic elements.
