Bridging the Gap: College Reading (wiht MyWritingLab)
Written for the mid to high-level developmental reading course,Bridging the Gapby Brenda Smith continues to be the #1 textbook choice of developmental reading educators.
Bridging the Gapwas the first book to focus on how to read college textbooks. This theme has been broadened by linking textbook readings to recent news in the popular press and adding material on critical thinking and the Internet. A hallmark of the text, the end-of-chapter readings, represent the “bridges” of text-to-text, text-to-world, and text-to-self; and the varying reading levels to permit individualization of assignments to meet varying student needs. A variety of academic disciplines are represented throughout, including psychology, history, biology, business, allied health, and English literature.
