Summary

Written for the upper-level developmental courses, THE READER'S CORNER features compelling reading selections and strategies that build strong critical thinking and analytical skills. The readings vary in length and reflect a range of sources, from the Associated Press to the works of authors such as Richard Rodriguez, Caroline Hwang, and Leonard Pitts. Longer selections allow students to apply new skills and strategies to material similar what they will encounter in other college courses. Unlike traditional texts that teach reading skills through "skill and drill" exercises, THE READER'S CORNER inspires students to think critically about what they read by offering a more authentic reading experience. The Fourth Edition presents new textbook readings and poetry selections, providing students with additional opportunities to practice their skills and work with college-level readings. A robust pre- and post-reading apparatus accompanies each selection and helps build students' vocabulary, critical-reading, and critical-thinking skills.
