Academic Literacy: Readings and Strategies
Designed for mid-level developmental readers, Academic Literacy combines a reading strategies handbook with discipline-specific readings. Part I, Handbook for Reading and Study Strategies, emphasizes active reading and the basics of comprehension: topics, main ideas, supporting details, patterns of organization, understanding vocabulary, and notetaking. The seven chapters in Part II, Discipline-Specific Readings, introduce students to readings typically encountered in seven different college disciplines.
