This short-essay reader for upper-level developmental writing courses is designed to help students improve their ability to read, understand, and express ideas. Thematically organized, the text provides provocative readings that build on each other and prompt meaningful, ongoing discussion among students throughout the term. One important reading/writing strategy is featured in each thematic chapter, and extensive pre- and post-reading activities promote critical thinking, reading, and writing.
