Summary

Developing Reading Skills, Advanced, 3/E is intended for college students or other adults who want to develop their reading skills for academic, personal and/or career purposes. It includes a variety of reading, writing, discussion, and structure exercises designed to help learners develop comprehension and integrate new ideas with their knowledge and experiences. The readings are on challenging and relevant topics and have been selected from a wide variety of published sources including newspaper and magazine articles and chapters from both fiction and nonfiction books. Excerpts from college textbooks are included as well.

Benefits:

  • Thematic organization allows for natural recycling and spiraling of concepts, vocabulary and syntactic structures.
  • Pre-reading activities activate background knowledge and set the stage for successful integration of new ideas and concepts.
  • Integrated reading-writing connection encourages students to understand and interpret text, and then apply their knowledge of purposeful expression to their own writing.
  • Reading selections drawn from a variety of genres promote the acquisition of a diverse and broad-based set of reading skills.
