Reading Beyond Words / Edition 6

This sixth edition of READING BEYOND WORDS continues to provide instructional materials to help students develop reading-study skills, not only for college success but for lifetime use. As the title suggests, reading beyond words implies not only comprehending what the words are saying, butinterpreting, questioning, comparing, and evaluating what an author means. Comprehension exercises lead students from the basics of finding main ideas to realizing that some questions have no ready answers and require thought and discussion. Reading selections vary in length, difficulty, and subject matter, accommodating a variety of student skill levels and interests. Selections by Malcolm X, John Gonzales, and Richard Rodriguez provide inspiration and encouragement to students.
