Active Reading Skills
Pearson/Longman, 2007 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 546 pages
Active Reading Skills, based on the premise students learn best by doing, teaches essential reading and thinking skills using concise instruction, guided practice, extensive application, and feedback. Each of the twelve chapters focuses on a specific reading skill and includes instruction, practice exercises, quizzes, and mastery tests. Because the skill instruction is brief, students spend more time applying the skills through extensive practice. The actual instruction and exercise format were designed to accommodate a variety of learning styles to reach students.
