Summary

By Rebecca Fraser-Thill, Bates College. This invaluable student resource opens with a Preview section that encourages students to note initial impressions of chapter material-what surprised them, what they're curious about, and specific queries they have. The Question section poses the learning objectives in an outline format and serves as the foundation for the next sections, Reading for Understanding and Reflection Breaks. These sections include cross-relational activities such as matching and critical thinking exercises, which build on material just covered. Expand sections pulls all the material together in applied exercises such as research, writing and Web activities that expand on the themes of the text. The final review provides multiple-choice and essay practice questions.
