Reading for Results, 10/e, is the mid-level text in the ever-popular Laraine Flemming reading series 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 multipage textbook excerpts. Once students feel comfortable identifying main ideas, supporting details, transitional devices, and organizational patterns within paragraphs, they move on to longer multiparagraph selections that prepare them for the extended, more academic readings concluding the text. The majority of these extended readings are new to the Tenth Edition and cover topics of current interest such as the genetic origin of selfishness; the rise of third-party politics, error-prone eyewitness testimony, and the potential problem of nuclear waste. New pre-reading tips, monitoring strategies, comprehension and critical reading questions along with discussion topics, writing assignments, and suggestions for practical application accompany each of the ten extended readings so that students can apply all of the comprehension and critical reading skills introduced in Chapters 1-10.

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.
