Published by Longman

Published Date: Jan 26, 2014

Description

The Master Reader combines solid skill instruction with a wealth of guided practice to develop the quintessential abilities students need to become master readers and critical thinkers.

 

The author integrates reading skills with the reading process (SQ3R) to produce more effective readers and lead students to discover the power and pleasure of reading. Providing step-by-step reading instruction, a wide range of practice and test materials (including a separate lab manual), and a rich selection of readings from textbooks and other sources, the author makes students responsible for their reading by guiding them to improve mastery of the major reading skills while teaching students to develop a system for reading.
