Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Dedicated to meeting the academic needs of low-intermediate-level students, this book prepares students to take on the demands of college-level reading.
As part of the 20-book Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success series, College Reading 1 helps students learn to comprehend academic reading in a range of disciplines, expand academic vocabulary, develop organizational structures--such as connectors and transitions--to better comprehend reading passages, recognize cultural references, develop dictionary skills, and build on successful study skills. With reading selections from a variety of disciplines with high enrollment patterns at U.S. colleges, this text uses reading selections from authentic Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high schools texts. These readings are complemented by practical exercises and activities that enhance the teaching-learning process.
The Reading strand focuses on the development of the reading skills students need to be successful in college. Authentic academic readings and carefully selected topics help students build general background knowledge which will be valuable in their future college studies.
