The authors of Structured Reading have developed an innovative approach to teaching reading at the college level: detailed instruction in the separate skills areas followed by extensive, repeated practice.   Using an FAQ approach, Part One includes instruction in the separate college-level reading skills that students need.  Parts Two through Six contain thirty complete reading selections drawn from books, magazines, newspapers, and textbooks in disciplines across the curriculum.

From the Publisher:

The highly regarded, exceptionally effective approach of Structured Reading is grounded in psycholinguistic theory and based on the principle that readers improve their skills not by reading about reading, but rather by guided, hands-on experience with reading.

From the Back Cover:

As always, Structured Reading offers a systematic, research-based approach for helping students improve their reading comprehension skills. Research in reading improvement consistently confirms that grade-point averages are raised significantly when instruction emphasizes the analytical and critical reading skills used in this book. Our approach in Structured Reading is grounded in psycholinguistic theory, based on the principle that readers improve not by reading about reading, but they learn best from guided, hands-on experience with the reading of complete selections.

NEW FEATURES TO THE SIXTH EDITION:
  • NEW—An Instructor's Edition. For the first time, Structured Reading comes with an Instructor's Edition, complete with exercise answers and teaching tips right in the text for instructors. The Instructor's Edition makes Structured Reading easier than ever to use.
  • NEW—A completely revised, thoroughly expanded Part I: How to Structure Your Reading. This section has been doubled in size to give students plenty of opportunity to practice individual reading skills before moving on to the 30 full-length readings in the text.
  • NEW—Five new reading selections, including essays on road rage, coping with language barriers, Texas' Juneteenth celebration, death penalty victims, and crossing the border into the United States.
