Summary

This unique collection of reading and study strategies is designed to introduce developmental readers with a wide range of learning styles to the processes involved in reading both general and discipline-specific texts. Through a variety of exercises students learn to take control of their reading; think and read critically; identify topics and main ideas; read visual aids, organizational patterns, and details; listen to lectures and take notes; increase vocabulary; and make self-assessments. Reading and writing are fully integrated, in both the models and the activities, so students learn to use writing to complement their reading.
