Summary

For courses in Developmental Reading or College Reading. The highly regarded, exceptionally effective approach of Structured Reading is grounded in psycholinguistic theory and based on the principle that readers improve their skills not by reading about reading, but rather by guided, hands-on experience with reading. Throughout the text readers encounter essays from books, magazines, and texts. They use this material to develop their critical thinking, reading, and vocabulary skills.
