The first developmental reading book to take a contemporary issues approach, "Critical Reading, Critical Thinking" offers a brief review of important developmental reading skills followed by a sequence of chapters covering critical reading. Interesting, relevant, and fun, this book offers increased focus on vocabulary and critical thinking, providing an even stronger connection between the development of reading, writing, and critical thinking skills with contemporary issues. The examples and readings are all drawn from a variety of contemporary genres: from today's headlines and news shows to movies and magazines. The readings range from animal rights to European integration to teen pregnancy to religious and cultural clashes in the United States. Each chapter includes mastery tests with both subjective and objective questions in keeping with instructors' desire for easy-to-grade homework. Each chapter includes a large number of activities and practice exercises to help readers apply what they have learned. Think About It! exercises contain photographs, advertisements, and other visual aids to encourage critical thinking.
