Description

Structured Reading is grounded in the theory that students learn best from guided, hands-on experience with complete, not partial, reading selections. This text approaches students with detailed instruction in the separate skills areas that assure movement to college-level reading abilities, followed by extensive, repeated practice found in a variety of essays from books, magazines, and texts.
