Overview

Bridging the Gap has been fully revised to include Collaborative Critical Thinking boxes and Learning Logs, two critical thinking components new to this fifth edition. Along with these elements - which have been so successful in Breaking Through, the lower-level companion text to Bridging the Gap - all other features have been strengthened to further enhance this best-selling reading text. Widely praised for her engaging and motivating writing style, author Brenda D. Smith introduces three reading levels to students - in ascending order of difficulty - that are designed to encourage critical thinking. The fifth edition showcases expanded summary writing discussions, additional practice exercises, and new passages that model the various patterns of organization. Over 60 percent of the end-of-chapter selections were replaced, and all chapters now contain at least one new longer selection. Many academic disciplines are represented throughout, including psychology, history, business, allied health, sociology, English literature, and more.
