Shorter selections are included in-book, while longer pieces (such as Alcott's An Old-Fashioned Girl and Elizabeth George Speare's The Sign of the Beaver) must be obtained separately. Each section also features a writing practice section that targets important skills and concepts (such as quotes, vocabulary, plot, developing a thesis, etc) relevant to writing an essay.
