ISBN10: 083845710X

Summary: This text is designed for low-level reading courses and/or ESL courses in the developmental reading program. It uses selections from reading sources that students will encounter daily in college--textbooks, college catalogs, financial aid documents, correspondence and other information from institutions, articles from college newspapers, and web-based information--to build reading comprehension. After an introductory chapter that explains how to use the text and its
key features, the next five chapters of the text focus on the language of college coursework including decoding, dictionary and thesaurus use, using the context, structural analysis, and vocabulary development. Following those chapters, the remaining five chapters introduce students to reading strategies for understanding main ideas, details, and drawing conclusions. These chapters will also instruct students on reading visuals and identifying and understanding the unique features of information from the Internet and World Wide Web. The text focuses on reading fundamentals and academic reading, employing a low reading level and conversational writing style.
