About this title

Synopsis:


For courses in Developmental Reading.
Builds on the skills for college reading success Bridging the Gap encourages students to build on their previous reading experience to develop strategies for the demands of college reading. The authors help students create schemata through numerous academic readings and videos, and ultimately build new “bridges” with text-to-text, text-to-world, and text-to-self connections. 
At the same time, fundamentals are strengthened through comprehensive skill instruction, critical-thinking activities, dependable exercises and examples, vocabulary development, and abundant high-interest readings. Each chapter introduces a new strategy, provides short exercises, and then offers practice through longer textbook selections. A new sequencing of topics begins with subjects that are critical to college reading success.
Also available with MyReadingLab™   MyReadingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them develop their reading skills and promotes transference of those skills to college-level work. Full-length readings and assignments from the text are available in the etext version of MyReadingLab, strengthening the connection between the classroom and work done outside of class.
