Intended for beginning-level young adult and adult students of English as a Second Language, this innovative text combines the elements of a successful reading program with a unique, developmental format designed to teach a wide range of reading skills. The four sections of "Reading Power" are designed to be used concurrently. Each focuses on a different aspect of reading: "Reading for Pleasure" - This section stresses independent reading by suggesting a variety of ways to choose books and also offers a list of high-interest readers for students to enjoy. "Reading Comprehension Skills" - This series of exercises provides focused instruction to develop necessary reading skills: previewing, scanning, guessing word meanings, finding topics, main ideas, and patterns of organization, using reference words effectively, and skimming. "Reading Faster" - These short fiction and non-fiction passages form a continuing story line and offer practice for improving reading speed and comprehension. "Thinking Skills" - These exercises are designed to provide practice in recognizing logical thought patterns in English and guessing the meanings of words from the context.
