Summary

Focused on interesting, contemporary themes, A COMMUNITY OF READERS presents college-level reading skills concerning real-life issues relevant to students. A COMMUNITY OF READERS, the second of two books in the Alexander reading series, offers guided, detailed instruction on all segments of the reading and learning process: reading, discussing, writing, and critical thinking. The author uses a unique system to teach the reading process called PRO (Prepare to Read, Read Actively and Reflect, and Organize to learn), which gives students a concrete learning process to follow. Each chapter introduces a key reading skill (e.g. main idea, vocabulary, inference) and focuses on one theme. This thematic organization helps students develop schema while improving their reading skills. The Fifth Edition maintains the focus on student participation in the classroom community, and covers basic to high level reading skills including examining fact and opinion, understanding bias, and thinking critically.
