Summary

Taking a holistic approach to developmental reading, ACTIVATE: COLLEGE READING is the first book in a 3-book series. It guides students through a stepped and incremental approach, activating background or prior knowledge as many of the skills students need to become stronger readers are skills they already possess and use on a daily basis. Often using popular media as a springboard, Dole and Taggart show students how the skills used when watching television or movies can easily transfer to their reading. Reviewers have lauded the inclusion of varied, interesting readings that will stimulate students' interest in reading and will provide them with background knowledge needed for future college courses.
