Summary: Confronted by declining reading test scores, instructors choose this highly popular title to help ensure their students' success across the college curriculum. Academic Literacy combines a mid-level handbook of reading strategies with textbook readings from seven disciplines: business, history, literature, political science, psychology, sociology, and the sciences. The Handbook for Reading and Study Strategies (Chapters 1-9) offers detailed instructions and exercises ...show more on such topics as how to identify the central topic, subtopics, and main ideas, in addition to techniques for active listening and note taking.

Numerous short-answer questions, tips on how to prepare for tests, and other pedagogical features help to engage students' critical-thinking skills. In addition to extensive questions and exercises, this edition includes frequent writing opportunities and requires students to write at least a paragraph before completing the text.

  • New! A third of the readings are new to this edition, including excerpts from psychology and political science textbooks, as well as Tom Chiarella's "Collecting Myself," from Why I Write.
  • New! The chapter on tone includes a new Tone Box feature, defining what specific words mean to readers--a common trouble spot for developmental students.
  • New! This edition features expanded exercises on how to find the main idea as well as identify both major and minor details in a passage.
