Contextual vocabulary coverage is included throughout the book. Paragraphs and short passages used in examples and exercises are drawn from contemporary sources, as well as college textbooks from across the disciplines. The book uses pattern mapping throughout as a heuristic to help readers understand the various organizational structures that authors employ. Integrated throughout the book is instruction on higher-level critical thinking skills, such as drawing inferences, evaluating evidence, recognizing propaganda and bias, and identifying logical fallacies. For those interested in developing their reading skills.
