For courses in Introductory Reading (6-9 grade level).

Guides students in how to read, comprehend, and retain college-level material
The lower-level (roughly grades 6-9) text in Brenda Smith’s two-book series, Breaking Through: College Reading, Eleventh Edition motivates and helps equip students with the skills they need to achieve their academic and career goals. The text emphasizes the building of prior knowledge — or schemata — one of the most critical elements in helping developing readers achieve.

The use of actual college textbook passages offers immediate modeling and application of study and reading skills at a realistic level. Students first apply each skill to short textbook passages.  They then build toward applying multiple skills to the longer academic selections that conclude most chapters.

Also Available with MyReadingLab™
This title is also available with MyReadingLab–an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them develop their reading skills and promotes transference of those skills to college-level work. The three selections found at the conclusion of most chapters — including the apparatus built around them — are now available in MyReadingLab, giving students and instructors an even easier way of doing, evaluating, and tracking the course work.
