--

Published in part with Dorling Kindersley (DK) to combine instruction with high-interest visuals, Reading for College puts reading in the context of real life to engage students in their learning.

 

Reading for College is shaped by two research-based assumptions: students are most engaged when the material is revelant to their lives and students are most successful when they are active learners. To support the first premise, author Corrine Fennessy brings a career topic into focus for each chapter and uses carefully chosen “real-world” reading selection so that students can start to think about possible careers and setting goals.  For the latter principle, Fennessy engages students in activities-based learning in order to help them master key reading skills.  Students learn by doing, not by reading extensively about how to do something.  The end result is students' mastery of key reading skills and strategies while discovering connections to the readings themselves.
