Reading for Results, 10/e, is the mid-level text in the ever-popular Laraine Flemming reading series which includes Reading Keys (beginning level) and Reading for Thinking (advanced level). This hallmark developmental reading text is filled with stimulating readings that range in length from single paragraphs to multipage textbook excerpts. Once students feel comfortable identifying main ideas, supporting details, transitional devices, and organizational patterns within paragraphs, they move on to longer multiparagraph selections that prepare them for the extended, more academic readings concluding the text. The majority of these extended readings are new to the Tenth Edition and cover topics of current interest such as the genetic origin of selfishness; the rise of third-party politics, error-prone eyewitness testimony, and the potential problem of nuclear waste. New pre-reading tips, monitoring strategies, comprehension and critical reading questions along with discussion topics, writing assignments, and suggestions for practical application accompany each of the ten extended readings so that students can apply all of the comprehension and critical reading skills introduced in Chapters 1-10.
