Proceeds logically from literal comprehension to critical interpretation and response

Guide to College Reading empowers students by helping them develop the skills needed for the diverse reading demands of college courses, and it helps them to become active learners and critical thinkers. Organized into six parts, it guides students from comprehension to application — with ample opportunity to practice skills and engage with exercises. Guide to College Reading focuses on the key areas of reading comprehension, vocabulary improvement, and textbook reading; concurrently, it addresses the learning characteristics, attitudes, and motivational levels of reading students.


Also available with MyReadingLab™

This title is also available with MyReadingLab, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to complement this text by further engaging students and improving results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them develop their reading skills — ultimately promoting transference of those skills to college-level work. Key exercises and readings from McWhorter’s text are available within MyReadingLab, strengthening the connection between the classroom and students’ independent work.
