Reading Strategies for College and Beyond offers simple, practical strategies designed to lead students to a successful college career. These strategies have a wide range of applications and can be useful tools for both students and teachers seeking new ways to engage developmental students.
As each reading strategy is learned, it is practiced and applied to students’ textbook reading assignments from other college courses. This text shows students that reading is not a passive process, but rather an active one that is influenced by what they bring to the text, how they prepare themselves to read, and what they do while reading. All these bear directly on how much they get from the reading material. The active engagement promoted by the text enhances both comprehension and recall, while the perspectives discussed create an engaging and thought provoking reading experience for students.
The Second Edition will be published Spring 2018. ISBN: 978-1-5165-2474-7
Adopting instructors will receive an instructor's manual in addition to a sample syllabus and reading schedule.
"The Step-by-Step Strategy Descriptions at the beginning of each module show the student exactly what to do and how they will benefit from working through the module. Instructors will enjoy using the book because it is so clearly written that there is no guess work for the student. The book provides tremendous flexibility because the instructor can choose to assign the modules they feel are of the greatest value. I can see this book being used in learning skills classes or by students who are receiving individualized instruction. Essentially this book is a real contribution to all of us working to enhance the success of our students!”—Timothy L. Walter, Dean of Campus Affairs, Oakland Community College, Highland Lakes Campus
