For our second post, we are going to combine the skills that you practiced in the first post with practice writing about multiple texts at the same time--in other words, putting texts in conversation with each other. This is an important skill for research writing. Research is the bringing together of many ideas--of your own and the ideas of others--into conversation with each other.
