Overview

Organized around high-interest, contemporary themes, A Community of Readers presents college reading and study skills in the context of real-life issues relevant to students' lives. Throughout, the text emphasizes student involvement in the stages of the reading/learning process: prereading, active reading, post-reading activities, and critical reflection. Students learn to comprehend, analyze, and organize information from textbook selections and various other sources and to apply their reading and critical thinking skills to study the issues and consider solutions both individually and collaboratively. A Community of Readers leads students to learn, practice, and review the skills needed to successfully adapt reading and study strategies to their academic course work.
