The whole-language approach of this reader moves from collaborative learning (a unique emphasis on this area) to independent learning with an emphasis on exposition, critical reading and contextual vocabulary acquisition. Thematic organization provides a rare, in-depth look at subjects so students can use prior knowledge to advance to higher level discourse. Coverage of styles including narrative, draws on examples from books, textbooks, newspapers, magazines and other sources. High-interest readings engage students emotionally and intellectually - even those who believe they do not like to read.
