PARAGRAPHS AND ESSAYS is the higher-level companion to SENTENCES, PARAGRAPHS, AND BEYOND in the popular two-book Brandon series. Written in an informal, engaging tone, this easy-to-use text takes students through all the stages of the writing process as they transition from simple to complex writing assignments. Sample student paragraphs and essays with stages exemplify the patterns of writing, while clear reading instruction offers students the opportunity to analyze readings and to practice the reading-based writing required in academic environments. Students master common writing patterns while learning to use textbooks as a springboard for their own writing in the form of summary, reaction, or response. Seventy-one high-interest, distinctive readings are integrated throughout the Eleventh Edition for analysis and as models of good writing. Clear, explicit writing prompts support each reading and focus on reading-based, cross-curricular, career-related, and general topics. In addition, the photo/art program promotes critical thinking, lively discussion, and analytical writing. The text is flexible in its format, allowing instructors to begin at any stage of instruction and to emphasize the paragraph or the essay, or to mix assignments.

He has served as chair of the English Department at Mt. San Antonio College, where he taught for more than thirty years and occasionally still teaches. Few authors are as active in the promotion of their books as Lee Brandon, who regularly visits schools across the country and presents at professional conferences. Lee also has to his credit poems and short stories in magazines; songs recorded and in sheet music; a best-selling musical play for elementary school students (in print with Lorenz Music); a play produced by a college drama department; a published Ford Foundation grant project; a chapbook of ballads about his youth, Oklahoma, My Sweet Sorrow; a chapbook of ballads about his experience teaching for ten years in a high-security California women's prison, Butterflies on Barbwire; and newspaper articles about travel, adventures, and whimsical experiences.
Kelly Brandon is a partner in the father-son writing team for two best-selling series, Sentences, Paragraphs, and Beyond with Integrated Readings and Paragraphs and Essays with Integrated Readings, as well as the At a Glance books. He is a tenured professor of English at Santa Ana College, where he has taught for twenty-four years. His B.A. is from the University of California at Los Angeles and his M.A. is from the University of California at Santa Barbara. For recreation he does bodybuilding, backpacks, plays the clarinet, drives his fully restored 1953 yellow and white Chevrolet Bel Air, listens to music, and reads eclectically and voraciously.
"Has excellent readings for all the rhetorical methods, and each rhetorical mode is developed well. The grammar section of the text is by far one of the most comprehensive sections, yet seems to be easily understood by most students. Paragraphs and Essays fulfills the goals and objectives to get to the next level without frightening the students."
"Has a greater variety of examples and types of topics than other texts I've used. I like the progression from reading the variety of professionally and student-written examples to the variety of topics for assignments."
"I think the reading-centered writing is very useful in providing form and techniques for the students. This approach helps the students create an awareness of using models of writing and putting their own style (voice) into a particular form. I believe that providing clear forms and models gives our students something concrete to build on."
