Reading Critically. Informal Series/23.
Intended to provide supplementary material for existing courses in the various content areas, the activities in this book are designed to help high school students approach the act of reading in a more critical fashion. The book is divided into three sections, each of which contains approximately one term's work. The first section deals with factual evidence and statements involving cause and effect, while the second section concerns value-laden descriptions and proposals for change. The material in the second section is drawn from a variety of sources and is written in a style generally found in newspapers, books, and magazines. The third section deals with evaluating definitions, principles, and general points of view, and the concepts and exercises are more abstract than those of the first two sections. (FL)
