This textbook is well organized for a semester-long course that will bring out many of the critical skills necessary for doing college level work. The textbook begins by exploring issues in active learning and vocabulary, some of the key concepts necessary for comprehending easily what one is reading. Within each section, there are readings and essays designed to strengthen the points being emphasized. Each section ends with a vocabulary booster piece, and the final chapter is a very useful guide of test-taking techniques and study tips.






Bridging the Gap : College Reading: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Brenda Smith’s Bridging the Gap continues to be the #1 textbook choice of developmental reading educators.

To improve students’ reading, Bridging the Gap offers comprehensive skill instruction, dependable exercises and examples, vocabulary development, and wealth of high-interest readings that provide meaningful practice. To prepare students for the demands of college reading, Brenda helping provides strategies for connecting previous experiences to what is being learned.

The combination of Bridging the Gap and Pearson's MyReadingLab (www.myreadinglab.com) offers unparalleled instruction and practice to improve students' reading.

Written for the mid to high-level developmental reading level, Bridging the Gap, 7/e by Brenda Smith continues to be the number one choice of developmental reading educators. The seventh edition of Bridging the Gap has been carefully developed with the needs of developing readers in mind. Over the course of several editions, this theme has been broadened by linking textbook readings to recent news in the popular press, and adding material on critical thinking and the Internet.

A hallmark of the book, the end-of-chapter readings represent three different reading levels (9th-10th, 10th-12th, 12th+) to permit individualization of assignments to meet varying needs. A variety of academic disciplines are represented throughout, including psychology, history, biology, business, allied health, English literature, and more. A new emphasis on cultural literacy is realized in a new feature called "Concept Prep" created to help readers develop a schema of major concepts and people in the academic disciplines.

For those seeking to develop their reading skills at the 9th-10th, 10th-12th or 12th+ reading levels. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
