Summary

Critical Reading for College and Beyond uses regular journaling and self-assessment techniques to help students hone their abilities to read, analyze, and respond to textbooks and other college-appropriate materials.

Features

  • Metacognitive Learning: Students are taught to think critically as they read as an aid to retaining and processing information. Concentration, self-awareness, time management, and memory are addressed as essential skills related to critical reading.
  • Scaffolding: Each chapter is more challenging than the last ? including more demanding exercises and employing a more sophisticated reading strategy ? to encourage students to utilize all the information learned up to that point.
  • Learning Journals: Use of journals, which include student models, throughout the text helps students reflect on the techniques being taught.
  • CATs (Classroom Assessment Techniques): These self-assessment tools are embedded in every chapter to help students assess their progress.
  • Numerous High-Interest Readings: Reading selections by well-known authors, including Christopher Darden, Rush Linbaugh, Anne Rice, and J.K. Rowling provide an opportunity for students to discuss important ideas in class, as well as the skills they use in evaluating them.
  • Internet Connection: A full chapter (Ch.14) is dedicated to helping students evaluate Internet sources and critically assess the wealth of information found on the Web. Webliographies at the end of each chapter link students to relevant sites that provide additional practice for strategies being taught.
