Summary

Academic Encounters: American Studies uses a sustained-content approach to help students develop the skills they need to meet the demands of academic courses. The text engages students with academic readings, photos, graphs, and charts on stimulating topics from the field of American Studies that deal with important events and ideas in American history and culture that are relevant to American life today. Topics include government, race relations, the history of U.S. immigration, jazz and blues, movies, hip-hop, and the interplay of American culture and cultures from around the world. Exercises that accompany the lessons develop important reading skills such as reading for detail, skimming, reading critically, and applying what you have read. Students also learn study skills such as highlighting, note taking, and preparing for a quiz. Each chapter ends with a guided academic writing assignment. Tasks to build vocabulary and academic writing skills occur throughout the book.
