Summary

Concentrating on both general and discipline-specific reading skills, Academic Literacy combines a reading strategies handbook with a collection of discipline-specific readings, complete with exercises and models informed by the latest pedagogy. Part One discusses critical reading and thinking, identifying topics and main ideas, reading visual aids, organizational patterns, listening and notetaking, increasing vocabulary, and making self-assessments. Part Two introduces students to specific reading skills for psychology, history, sociology, literature, the sciences, political science, business, and the arts. This section provides students with actual readings from commonly assigned texts and introduces the basic concepts of the disciplines themselves.
