Making Reading Relevant is a brief, intermediate-level reading text that manages to address all of the topics and issues needed to conduct productive and meaningful courses.

 

The authors designed Making Reading Relevant to be flexible: it may be used as the primary textbook for the course or as a reference tool to supplement the use of outside reading materials (primary sources). Overall, the authors stress the application of reading strategies (using primary reading sources as the basis of the content) so students learn to become better, more efficient readers–not by just reading about how to read, but by applying skills to reading real sources.

 

This edition of Making Reading Relevant is supported by an enhanced MyReadingLab course, which offers text-specific exercises within the Learning Path, all of which feed into the MyReadingLab Gradebook.
