The Reading Context provides extensive reading skills practice at a new value price of under $25. Designed for developmental reading courses (Grades 9㬈), The Reading Context emphasizes reading as a three-step "prepare - read -respond" process. The book starts where developing readers need to start: with an explanation of the context created by author, work, and reader. It also stresses the importance of thinking about who the writer is, what the author's purpose is, what kind of work students are about to read, and what they can expect to gain from it. Reading selections have been chosen to hold student interest while representing the kinds of material they will meet in college assignments -textbook material from business to psychology, from advertising to history, from health to education. Chapters are filled with short prose pieces for illustration and practice, and each chapter concludes with two or three longer reading selections. In each chapter, clear explanations of each reading skill are supported by numerous exercises.
