About this title


Bridging the Gap has been fully revised to include Collaborative Critical Thinking boxes and Learning Logs, two critical thinking components new to this fifth edition. Along with these elements - which have been so successful in Breaking Through, the lower-level companion text to Bridging the Gap - all other features have been strengthened to further enhance this best-selling reading text. Widely praised for her engaging and motivating writing style, author Brenda D. Smith introduces three reading levels to students - in ascending order of difficulty - that are designed to encourage critical thinking. The fifth edition showcases expanded summary writing discussions, additional practice exercises, and new passages that model the various patterns of organization. Over 60 percent of the end-of-chapter selections were replaced, and all chapters now contain at least one new longer selection. Many academic disciplines are represented throughout, including psychology, history, business, allied health, sociology, English literature, and more.

From the Back Cover:

Written for the mid to high-level developmental reading level, Bridging the Gap, 7/e by Brenda Smith continues to be the number one choice of developmental reading educators. The seventh edition of Bridging the Gap has been carefully developed with the needs of developing readers in mind. Over the course of several editions, this theme has been broadened by linking textbook readings to recent news in the popular press, and adding material on critical thinking and the Internet. A hallmark of the book, the end-of-chapter readings represent three different reading levels (9th-10th, 10th-12th, 12th+) to permit individualization of assignments to meet varying needs. A variety of academic disciplines are represented throughout, including psychology, history, biology, business, allied health, English literature, and more. A new emphasis on cultural literacy is realized in a new feature called "Concept Prep" created to help readers develop a schema of major concepts and people in the academic disciplines. For those seeking to develop their reading skills at the 9th-10th, 10th-12th or 12th+ reading levels.
