READING FOR RESULTS, 11e, is the mid-level text in the ever-popular reading series by Laraine Flemming, which includes READING KEYS (beginning level) and READING FOR THINKING (advanced level). This hallmark developmental reading text is filled with stimulating readings that range in length from single paragraphs to textbook excerpts. Chapters and explanations are carefully structured so that each skill builds on the previous one until students are ready to tackle longer, multi-paragraph selections. By Chapter 11, "More on Purpose, Tone, and Bias," students are ready to think about the basic structure of an argument and lay the foundations for critical thinking. The 11th edition features a wealth of enhancements. A new Chapter 7, "Drawing Inferences from Visual Aids," shows students how to read and interpret charts and graphs, as well as how such visuals connect to the text. The 11th edition also includes increased emphasis on vocabulary building, with over two hundred new words - many drawn from academic texts - which are introduced in context and defined in footnotes. A new "Summing Up the Key Points" box presents the chapter's key concepts; a few pages later, a brief "Check Your Understanding" quiz asks students to recap those key concepts. And techniques of outlining and diagramming are presented with visual examples for students to follow as well as diagrams to complete.

About the Author:

After receiving her B.S. at Southern Connecticut State University, where she was certified as a teacher of secondary reading, Laraine Flemming went on to earn an M.A. in English literature at Boston College and a Ph.D. in American literature at the State University of New York in Buffalo. During her career, Flemming has taught students from elementary to graduate school covering subjects as varied as reading and writing, American literature, time management, speed reading, and study skills. She began writing textbooks while working as Director of the Reading and Writing Center at Dean Junior College. In need of a reading textbook that had lots of exercises combined with genuinely thought-provoking readings, Flemming decided to write her own. You can contact Laraine Flemming by emailing her at laflemm@comcast.net or by visiting her website at www.laflemm.com.

Review:

"I have used Reading for Results for many years. For me, its greatest strengths are what it covers and the exercises offered in every chapter. . .Although I have tried other texts I always return to Reading for Results."

"I have used Reading for Results for at least 8 years, several editions. I selected it because of ample practice of skills, helpful attention to details that other books don't cover. . .I also like the multicultural and historical readings. Flemming seems to have a strong sense of ethics and global development in the reading content used. . .[The text] has engaged students and given them a sense of growth and I have liked seeing that for my students."
