The Writers at Work series prepares ESL students to tackle academic essay writing. Writers at Work: From Sentence to Paragraph is the lowest level in the Writers at Work series. It uses the same five-step process approach as the higher-level books. However, the approach has been modified to accommodate the lower level of the students. For example, a much greater emphasis is placed on vocabulary and grammar instruction. This enables lower-level students to write short accurate texts on simple topics. In the last three chapters, the book introduces the fundamentals of paragraph writing, and students progress to write basic paragraphs.
