Authentic texts covering a wide range of topics provide a basis for a skills and strategies approach to academic reading. Techniques of skimming and scanning, identifying main ideas, understanding text organization and guessing unknown vocabulary provide the basis for each unit. These are followed by more advanced strategies such as analyzing a writer's use of time, evaluating a writer's atttitude and assessing the degree of certainty in arguments. Each unit ends with discussion topics which lead into a writing task based on the reading texts.
