College Writing Skills with Readings, ninth edition, emphasizes personalized learning. Powered by Connect Writing, students use a groundbreaking personal learning plan, which helps them become aware of what they already know and what they need to practice. A self-study tool, its cutting-edge, continually-adaptive technology, and exclusive time-management features make students more productive, keep them on track, and give them the writing skills needed for all their college courses.
With a baseline adaptive diagnostic that assesses student proficiencies in five core areas of grammar and mechanics, students can generate a unique learning plan tailored to address their specific needs and help them determine what they want to study. Students receive a personalized program of lessons, videos, animations, and interactive exercises to improve their skills, as well as immediate feedback on their work. With an engine that incorporates metacognitive learning theory and provides ongoing diagnosis for each learning objective, the personal learning plan continually adapts with each student interaction, while built-in time management tools ensure that students work on pace to master all required learning objectives by the end of the course. This personalized, constantly-adapting online environment increases student readiness, motivation, and confidence and allows classroom instruction to focus on thoughtful and critical writing processes.

John Langan has taught reading and writing at Atlantic Cape Community College for more than 25 years. The author of a popular series of college textbooks on both writing and reading, John enjoys the challenge of developing instructive materials that are clear and lively. Before teaching, he earned advanced degrees in writing at Rutgers University and in reading at Rowan University. He also spent a year writing fiction that "is now at the back of a drawer waiting to be discovered and acclaimed posthumously." While in school, he supported himself by working as a truck driver, a machinist, a battery assembler, a hospital attendant, and an apple packer. In addition to his wife and Philly sports teams, his passions include reading and conveying to nonreaders the pleasure and power of books. Through Townsend Press, his educational publishing company, he has developed the nonprofit "Townsend Library"--a collection of more than 100 new and classic stories that appeal to readers of any age. Zo L. Albright has been involved in diverse aspects of education for 22 years. For the last 18 years, she has been a faculty member at Metropolitan Community College-Longview, teaching developmental writing, composition, and literature. She has created and implemented traditional and online curricula for high school and college English and composition courses and for a variety of literature courses. She continues to research new educational theory and practices. Zo has most recently served as co-author of English Skills with Readings, ninth edition, and contributing author to other Langan texts. She received her M.A. from Goldsmiths, University of London; B.S. and B.A. from the University of Idaho; and A.A. from Cottey College. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Kansas. Zo currently resides outside Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband and teenage son.
