From the Publisher"I like the thematic chapters - I think the examples and structure of the book is the best I've seen. Periodically I look at the texts which are something like "skills for critical reading" but I find the structure better in this one. My favorite part is at the end of the vocabulary section where students are reminded they don't need to look up words. Throughout the text, there's a realistic bent to the content. So I can usually follow it up by saying, let's face it....and we can talk about real things that students do. I also love the note-taking chapter (chapter 4). It stresses that students are unique and I encourage that."
"I especially like having a variety of readings to select from in each chapter, as well as having various practice exercises in each chapter. The reading topics are very interesting and deal with many current issues as well being presented at a level that is appropriate level for college students in developmental reading classes. Having a theme for each chapter brings cohesiveness to all the work in each chapter."
