The Basic Reading Skills Handbook, 6th edition, provides reading skills instruction, reference and practice for a first-level college reading course, in a convenient handbook format. The unique two-part format allows students to focus on skills they need the most and develop the skills in a meaningful context. Part One, the handbook provides basic reading skill instruction and exercises. Part Two, the anthology includes twelve high-interest readings and a casebook on Romance, Love, and Marriage, so that students can apply newly learned skills. Both the handbook chapters and the attached anthology offer extensive exercises keyed to the handbook presentation.
