9780131848894: Building Strategies for College Reading: A Text with Thematic Reader (4th Edition) (McGrath Developmental Reading)

This valuable book informs readers about the skills, strategies, attitudes, and habits associated with effective reading that are vital for success in every walk of life. Readers will see themselves as active participants in the reading process. Updated to include even more practice material—numerous excerpts, examples, and articles—Building Strategies for College Reading, 4/E stresses the importance of learning strategies to expand vocabulary. Nine chapters of this useful guide to effective reading are devoted to the development of skills and strategies. Topics include: reading as a process, building vocabulary, understanding main ideas, reading multi-paragraph selections and graphics, author's point of view, and organizing information. The selection of readings is divided into thematic sections, giving a context for understanding the skills presented; they include: “First Amendment Freedoms,” “Today's Workplace,” “Violence and Crime,” and “Biodiversity.” This book is a valuable tool and reference for anyone who needs to develop better reading, comprehension, and vocabulary skills.

From the Publisher:

This text approaches reading as a holistic, complex process rather than as a series of discrete, simplistic tasks. It provides strategy/skill material and authentic college reading materials in one volume -- exposing students to a broad array of good reading strategies and a large selection of authentic college reading tasks to better prepare them to be successful with the texts and tasks they will encounter as they continue in college.

From the Back Cover:

This fourth edition remains firmly focused on helping students develop a lame repertoire of reading and study strategies to meet the demands of reading college-level expositor- prose. Features in the fourth edition include:

Thematic reading units. Each of the themes includes a complete text chapter and 6-8 related articles:

  • First Amendment Freedoms (Government by the People, 20/E, Burns et al.)
  • Managing Human Resources & Labor Relations (Business, 7/E, Griffin & Ehert)
  • Crime & Violence (Social Problems, ll/E, Kornblum & Julian)
  • Is Earth Experiencing a Biodiversity Crisis? (Biology: Science for Life, Belk & Borden)
