Summary

The Active Reader is a reader designed to provide students with a practical, integrated approach to reading and writing at a post-secondary level. The book is divided into three sections, the first on academic reading, which introduces students to the conventions of academic discourse and to critical thinking; the second on academic writing, which begins with an overview of the college/university essay and then discusses the report, critical analyses, summaries, and research essays; and a final section of 39 readings organized into five thematic sections each of which includes diverse and cross-disciplinary readings.
