Fresh and innovative, READING FOR RESULTS 12th EDITION has been heavily revised to reflect the latest research and align even more closely with the Common Core Standards. A new, research-based approach to identifying main ideas shows students how skilled readers use key-word repetition and reference to decide where and how to focus their attention. A host of new textbook selections combined with think-aloud instructions guide students through reading and understanding the discipline-specific patterns that organize textbook writing. Instructors also now enjoy more instructional flexibility than ever before with a new 12-chapter sequence. If it seems appropriate, students can develop their skills solely in paragraphs, moving on to longer selections when they're ready. But if they are up to the challenge, they can move seamlessly back and forth between shorter and longer selections. Up-to-date in both content and research, READING FOR RESULTS 12e retains its step-by-step sequence, clear explanations and lively readings while taking into account the reading theory developed by cognitive scientist Walter Kintsch, who stresses that reading is less about the sentences on the page and more about what the reader brings to and takes away from that page.
