Taking a holistic approach to developmental reading, CONNECT: COLLEGE READING is an intermediate level book for reading levels 8-10. CONNECT strives to build students’ confidence by showing them that many of the skills needed to become stronger readers are skills they already possess and use on a daily basis. Using popular media as a springboard, Dole and Taggart show students how thinking skills used while watching television or movies can easily transfer to reading. CONNECT’s comprehensive approach includes extensive vocabulary coverage, critical thinking practice throughout, and textbook readings in every chapter to help students master college reading. The second edition includes a full chapter on inferences, enhanced coverage of main idea, and guides for specialized reading situations such as reading visuals, novels, and a guide to taking tests.

Review:

"The new revised version to Main Idea is a great improvement. It is brief, concise and to the point in finding the main idea of the material. It better relates to the students way of thinking."

"I am so happy to see the addition of various selections from other disciplines. These help the students stay engaged and provide variety for our courses. The difficulty level is appropriate for our students. This is realistic to what they will encounter in the courses, so they need to understand the material from that level."

About the Author:

Leslie has taught English as a second language at the high school level, and English as a foreign language at an agricultural college in China.
