The book provides opportunities for readers to make relationships, organize ideas, and analyze and synthesize new information. Activities are designed to foster critical thinking, reasoning, questioning, and evaluating. Each chapter begins with objectives and then offers explanations of each skill supported by examples and exercises. Each chapter also contains two longer reading selections which provide the opportunity to practice the skills learned. Other important skills covered in the book include vocabulary development, study skills, reading graphics, and test-taking. For anyone interested in developing college-level English skills.
