9780070410992: Reading and All That Jazz

Designed to help students become "jazzed" about reading, this new introductory reading text provides motivating and engaging readings selected to grab the reader's attention. Beautifully designed, READING AND ALL THAT JAZZ also features clear explanations and a wide variety of well developed practice exercises designed to provoke genuine thinking, interpretation, and even some improvisation on the part of the student and the instructor. The theme of jazz loosely holds the book together and was selected to emphasize a positive, exciting, personally involved approach to reading and learning.
