Overview

The first-level text in the successful Wiener/Bazerman System, Basic Reading Skills Handbook, 5/e, is based on the principle that students need specific skills and high-interest reading materials to improve their reading ability and level of engagement. Following the authors' popular two-part handbook/anthology format, the text opens with skills instruction and practice followed by readings and exercises for application. Consistent apparatus and terminology throughout, as well as self-contained chapters, make Wiener and Bazerman's developmental reading system an efficient and flexible teaching tool, both within and between texts.
