Developing Textbook Thinking - 5th edition

Developing Textbook Thinking (ISBN10: 061812344X; ISBN13: 9780618123445)
ISBN13: 978-0618123445
ISBN10: 061812344X

Summary: The Fifth Edition of Developing Textbook Thinking continues to guide mid-to-high level developmental students through a series of highly successful strategies based on the authors own BCA system. A four-step process, BCA represents Before Reading, Staying Connected During Reading, and After Reading--Studying and Reviewing.

Students learn and practice specific strategies for each of the four steps such as mapping, compare/contrast charting, creating time lin
es, outlining, and making a study guide for review. General strategies for reading and studying are taught in the context of the BCA system, including how to find the main idea, identify supporting details, increase motivation, manage time effectively, and take lecture notes.
  • New! The appendix now offers a reading from both a chemistry textbook and a computer literacy text. Each of the additional selections represents a different discipline: psychology, history, chemistry, computer literacy, biology, and business.
  • New! Plugging In activities at the end of most chapters allow students to hone their Internet skills and learn to approach the Web as a learning tool.
  • In many chapters, A Scenario to Write About and Discuss depicts a studying problem and prompts students to suggest ideas and solutions based on the specific strategies discussed throughout the text.
  • Application Exercises allow students to practice the strategies on the readings at the end of each chapter and the textbook selections in the appendix, then apply and adapt each of these strategies to textbooks in their other courses.
