Description

READING FOR RESULTS, International Edition, is the mid-level text in the ever-popular reading series by Laraine Flemming, which includes READING KEYS (beginning level) and READING FOR THINKING (advanced level). This hallmark developmental reading text is filled with stimulating readings that range in length from single paragraphs to textbook excerpts. Chapters and explanations are carefully structured so that each skill builds on the previous one until students are ready to tackle longer, multi-paragraph selections. By Chapter 11, "More on Purpose, Tone, and Bias," students are ready to think about the basic structure of an argument and lay the foundations for critical thinking. The 11th edition features a wealth of enhancements. A new Chapter 7, "Drawing Inferences from Visual Aids," shows students how to read and interpret charts and graphs, as well as how such visuals connect to the text. The 11th edition also includes increased emphasis on vocabulary building, with over two hundred new words many drawn from academic texts which are introduced in context and defined in footnotes. A new "Summing Up the Key Points" box presents the chapter's key concepts; a few pages later, a brief "Check Your Understanding" quiz asks students to recap those key concepts. And techniques of outlining and diagramming are presented with visual examples for students to follow as well as diagrams to complete.
