Content and Assets

The MindTap Learning Path guides students through readings, multimedia, and activities designed to follow the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension up to analysis and application. By hiding, rearranging, or adding your own content, you control what students see and when they see it and match the Learning Path to your course syllabus exactly.


The MindTap Learning Path Navigator (LPN) is the “home base” that guides students through their MindTap course. Comprised of individual Learning Units, the LPN is configured by the instructor, who may re-order the sequence of individual Learning Units, rename Learning Units to suit the course, and even insert entirely new content directly within the LPN-such as YouTube videos, Google Docs, and RSS feeds. By personalizing the Learning Path to the specific needs of the course, instructors make the content more contextually relevant and engaging for their students. MindTap for Grassroots with Reading: The Writer’s Workbook, 11e includes the complete ebook, Unit Overview videos, grammar videos, interactive versions of the practice exercises, Aplia homework, and more!

Author Bio

Susan Fawcett

Susan Fawcett started teaching English at Bronx Community College right after she finished college. The idea for the EVERGREEN books grew out of her frustration that adults needed remediation but the only material available had a tone more appropriate for middle school students. She occasionally teaches a class in Miami, where she lives in the winter and writes full time.
