Research shows that many students entering postsecondary education are unprepared for college reading demands. This article highlights college reading readiness according to four essential reading skills. We illustrate these skills by featuring vignettes of high school seniors who are college-ready and not college-ready. Then we contextualize the skills based on current research. Finally, we provide specific instructional strategies and approaches to these essential skills so high school teachers can help their students successfully transition to college literacy demands.
