For courses in College Reading and Academic Literacy.Reading in the Academic Environment provides teacher modeling and guided practice in content-area textbook reading. It teaches comprehension as a task, not as an isolated skill. The lessons help move the student from teacher dependency to independence in reading textbooks. Students will master academic reading on the literal level of comprehension by identifying explicit main ideas and details, following directions, and identifying a sequence. On the inferential level students select relevant information with which to base a conclusion or make a judgment. On the critical/creative level of comprehension (experience-based questions), students will be able to defend their own personal judgment of a written passage as to its truth, accuracy, and worth.
