Summary

Breaking Through provides instruction and practice on the reading and study skills necessary for successful independent college learning by providing a high volume of actual college textbook and academic selections for application opportunities. The use of actual college textbook passages offers immediate modeling and application of college study and reading skills at a realistic level. Students apply the skill being taught to reading short textbook passages and then go on to use multiple skills on the longer selections that conclude most chapters.
