Brings adults with limited reading skills closer to college-level reading by providing a step-by-step, hands-on approach to reading skill development and applications. Uses contemporary learning theory (i.e., skill preview, division of skills into small units, guided practice, immediate feedback, and skill practice). Presents word attack skills (e.g., phonics and syllabication); skills related to the use of context clues, word parts, a dictionary, and a personal vocabulary system; and skills for the formation and mapping of packages of related information through the identification of the main ideas and details in paragraphs and longer selections. Contains practice reading selections and exercises that provide opportunities not only for reading, but for critical thinking and writing as well. For adults with limited reading skills.
