From the Publisher"This text appears to be very comprehensive especially in light of its metacognitive focus. I am very pleased to find several additions to the text, including active learning strategies, text marking, text annotating and text note-taking. These strategies are left out of many developmental reading texts but are essential to development of students' improved comprehension and on-going academic success. I do think that my students would be engaged considering that the readings for the "Applications"exercises in each chapter are very relevent and current in the students' generation."
"I want my students to be better readers. I want them to have a clearer understanding of reading comprehension skills and I want them to have had a great deal of practice when they finish with my course. In addition, I want them to be able to use these skills in their other college classes. Using this book, I think I could accomplish my goals."
