Description

This practical approach to building reading skills through strategies is designed for college students, adults in literacy programs, and ESL learners. This book, designed for basic reading classes to prepare students for a college reading class, focuses on strategies, rather than on drills, and draws on written and oral language as a means to enhance reading. Students are motivated by reading interesting, varied authentic texts and are invited to become active participants through response journals, group activities, and comprehensive quizzes. Instructors will enjoy great flexibility in choosing strategies and readings to meet their classroom needs.
