short-answer questions, tips on how to prepare for tests, and tests that engage students' critical-thinking skills. It especially emphasizes self-assessment as a way to develop good reading habits.

  • New! A new chapter includes coverage on evaluating Web-based materials.

  • Updated! Using Technology activities have been revised and updated for currency. These activities provide students with opportunities to develop critical and creative thinking by integrating computer-based activities with traditional text-based experiences.
  • Each chapter in Part Two offers paired readings that present differing viewpoints on the same subject.
