About this title

Synopsis:

CONNECT READING provides a personalized learning plan for each student, continually developed and refined as students achieve mastery.  Each student plan is created through an individualized diagnostic that evaluates skills from 7th-grade level through college-readiness, for second-language learners, international students, adult students, and traditional high-schoolers.  Offered completely online, CONNECT READING can be used in conjunction with NEW WORLDS or OPENING DOORS, which provide a printed experience that teaches critical reading skills through close reading of anthologized chapters from best-selling undergraduate texts in Psychology, Sociology, Business, and more.
