New Directions : an Integrated Approach To Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking (2ND 05 Edition)by Peter S. Gardner
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
New Directions, Second Edition is a thematic reading-writing book aimed at the most advanced ESL learners. The Student's Book prepares students for the rigors of college-level writing by having them read long, challenging, authentic readings as a precursor to writing. This emphasis on reading gives New Directions its distinctive character. Each of the five topic-based chapters contains three core readings and five additional readings. The readings come from a variety of genres and are accompanied by exercise material. The second edition represents a major revision. It contains two entirely new chapters and many new readings and activities in the other three. Another significant new feature is a section at the end of the first chapter that takes students through the writing process. Students work through it for their first writing assignment and return to this thorough treatment of the writing process for each subsequent major writing assignment.

New Directions, an integrated skills text, bridges the gap between ESL and college content courses.
'New Directions is a thematically based, integrated skills reader designed to bridge the gap between ESL and college content courses. By providing reading and writing assignments representative of real college classes, New Directions challenges students to expand their horizons. Through extended, integrated reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities, students learn to generate hypotheses, argue, analyze critically, and distinguish between different types of writing and purposes for reading. Moreover, New Directions helps students develop such crucial skills as the ability to identify a writer\'s point of view and tone, interpret a writer\'s meaning inferentially as well as literally, and discriminate between opinion and fact. The text also teaches students to detect fallacies in reasoning, to reach conclusions and judgments based on supportable criteria, and to propose new ideas.'
