READING KEYS, 3rd Edition - the first in a three-book reading series by Laraine Flemming - offers a comprehensive introduction to reading skills and strategies, from using context clues to identifying purpose and bias. Clear, accessible explanations present reading concepts without oversimplifying the process of reading comprehension. To ensure students' understanding, reading "keys" or summaries follow the explanations, breaking them down into manageable chunks. Throughout each chapter, a variety of steadily more difficult exercises assess students' understanding of the material and promote improved comprehension and critical-thinking skills. This incremental approach to instruction and assessment makes it easier for beginning readers to absorb and master new information.The third edition of this text offers even more engaging readings - Laraine Flemming's signature - as well as a focus on study skills, a new vocabulary feature, and a revised final chapter, "From Comprehension to Critical Reading." A complete technology package - including online homework and practice and a package of Powerpoint slides and tests for the instructor - provides students with dynamic learning opportunities and instructors with enhanced teaching options.
