Overview

Help students break through

to concepts in content-area reading


  • Content-area reading skills help students understand their textbooks

  • Pre- and post-test work lets students focus on strengths and weaknesses

  • Special exercises encourage analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application


These are the tools you need for students to work through problems until they

can master the concepts (and not just the skills) each subject area requires.

More than just simple repetition, these books are designed to guide students

to their own intellectual breakthroughs.
