Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Based on an interactive reading model, this developmental reading book emphasizes reading to learn. Readers develop an increasingly complex understanding of the reading process through the application of a series of incremental strategies and "game plans." Readings are of varied lengths within the chapters, and a casebook of longer readings all based on the theme of intergenerational relationships is included at the end of the book. Also featuring discipline-specific vocabulary instruction, individual and collaborative activities, critical thinking and reading strategies, and a complete chapter on reading college textbooks, this new edition comprehensively assists the developmental reader. For those interested in developing their reading skills at the 6-9 grade level.
