Summary

The Houghton Mifflin College Reading Series follows a consistent sequence and structure, pairing skills and strategies with paragraphs and short selections to introduce new concepts in context.

There is ample opportunity for practice with the Test Yourself sections, end-of-chapter Tests, and Combined Skills Tests.

A flexible format allows instructors to introduce skills and activities or re-order chapters as they see fit. Critical Reading (Chapter 9) shows that most arguments aren't just pro-con but can have multiple perspectives between one extreme and another.
