Overview

Reading Skills for Success is a guide to advanced reading skills that can be used in conjunction with any freshman-level text. It is an excellent sequel to Reader's Choice.
Students using this book will develop their text-based processing skills by developing better understanding of word-level clues and recognizing different types of text structures. The appendixes include two sample textbook chapters — the first on ecosystems and the second on the diffusion of languages — so students may practice what they have learned.
Activities are designed to improve:
*analytical reading of academic prose
*the ability to apply one's knowledge to what is read by identifying textual relationships and structural organization of the paragraphs and the text
*reading of complex academic texts with in-depth and long-term understanding using reading, test preparation, and note taking strategies.
An answer key is included.
