From the Back Cover:

Exploring Content 1: Reading for Academic Success, by Lorraine C. Smith, engages English language learners in authentic academic content so they will succeed in college classes. Readings from college textbooks and supporting exercises teach students essential reading and study skills as well as academic and content vocabulary.

  • Art, illustrations, and graphs enhance each reading and help students understand important information.
  • Reading and study skills are introduced throughout the book. These include previewing vocabulary and content, highlighting, monitoring comprehension, and understanding and creating graphic organizers.
  • Unit follow-up activities, including writing assignments and Internet research, allow students to apply and extend what they have learned.
