Summary

Reading in Actionutilizes an active reading approach through progressive exercise sets and a focus on metacognition in order to help students improve their reading skills and develop a stronger reader identity. Gene Wintner recognizes that students' success in college reading courses is largely related to their engagement with the course materials, and answers the call by providing meaningful topics, high-interest reading selections, and a variety of activities to foster student engagement. Wintner carries this student engagement concept further by encouraging students to be aware of his/her own reading processes and establish a positive reader identity. This identify is forged through regular attention to metacognition and reflection of the student's growing identity as a reader.
