9780073513508: New Worlds: An Introduction to College Reading

CONNECT READING provides a personalized learning plan for each student, continually developed and refined as students achieve mastery.  Each student plan is created through an individualized diagnostic that evaluates skills from 7th-grade level through college-readiness, for second-language learners, international students, adult students, and traditional high-schoolers.  Offered completely online, CONNECT READING can be used in conjunction with NEW WORLDS or OPENING DOORS, which provide a printed experience that teaches critical reading skills through close reading of anthologized chapters from best-selling undergraduate texts in Psychology, Sociology, Business, and more.

About the Author:

JANET ELDER was graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas in Austin with a B.A. in English and Latin. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She was the recipient of a government fellowship for Southern Methodist University's Reading Research Program, which resulted in a master's degree. Her Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction in reading is from Texas Woman's University where the College of Education presented her the Outstanding Dissertation Award. She established the first comprehensive secondary reading program in the Dallas Independent School District, and has conducted extensive staff development training for Dallas area teachers. After teaching reading and study skills courses at Richland for several years, she was asked to develop and implement an honors program for the college. After coordinating the honors program during its first six years, she resumed teaching full time. In addition to teaching reading courses, Dr. Elder periodically serves on interdisciplanary teaching teams for honors English and humanities courses. She has served on a task force that re-evaluated Richland's writing-across-the-curriculum program. She has twice received the Extra Mile Award from special services (disabilities) students, has twice been her division's Piper Award nominee for excellence in teaching, and in 1993 received an Excellence Award from the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development. In 1999 she was one of three nominees for Richland's Excellence in Teaching Award. A frequent presenter at professional conferences and inservice workshops, she has a deep interest and expertise in “brain friendly” instruction.
