Anthology for Strategic Reader

By Abigail Lipson, Sheila M. Reindl

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jul 28, 2017


The Anthology for Strategic Reader contains all of the practice readings used in Strategic Reader

While the practice texts can be viewed on screen in Strategic Reader, research indicates that print is preferable for learning new approaches to reading.  Printed texts offer the visual, tactile, and spatial cues that help students master new strategies.  Once learned, new active reading strategies are readily transferred to on-screen reading.
