Expanding Reading Skills, Advanced.
Markstein, Linda; Hirasawa, Louise
This text is designed for adults who are interested in strengthening their reading skills for academic, personal or career purposes. It has been tested with both native and non-native speakers of English. Particular attention is given to guided reading practice and to the development of reading speed. The readings, representative of current non-fiction, magazine and newspaper writing, cover a wide range of subject matter in order to expose the reader to various content demands of general reading material. The exercises after each reading selection are directed to three areas of reading skills development: (1) vocabulary development; (2) structural analysis; and (3) relational and inferential analysis.
