With particular emphasis on helping students hone their critical thinking skills, this text presents more exercise work than comparable books to help students develop the reading skills and strategies essential for success in college. The text begins with basic reading skills on a literal level and progresses to more complex inferential skills, including critical evaluation of reading material. The text encourages, and provides opportunities for students to make relationships, organize ideas, and analyze and synthesize new information. Activities are designed to foster critical thinking, reasoning, questioning, and evaluating. Each chapter begins with objectives and then offers explanations of each skill supported by examples and exercises. Each chapter also contains two longer reading selections which provide the opportunity to practice the skills learned. Other important skills covered in the book include vocabulary development, study skills, reading graphics, and test-taking.
