Reading Thresholds helps basic readers develop analytical abilities and apply them to material they will encounter in college and in their careers. Students progress through a series of paragraph- and essay-length readings, moving naturally to longer selections as their confidence builds. The text's integrated treatment of reading, writing, and study skills; pedagogy using the SQ3R model; and encouraging tone guide students toward active and effective reading.
