Brenda Smiths Breaking Through has led the market for 20 years because it has kept current with trends and needs and has provided unwavering instruction and exercises. Comprised solely of freshman-level college textbook and academic selections for immediate practice with relevant materials, Breaking Through develops the reading, critical thinking, and study skills necessary for successful independent college learning and everyday life. A four-color design is used to appeal to increasingly visual student readers and keep their attention. A full textbook chapter, three selections per chapter, fourteen longer reading pieces, and two case books equip students with a wealth of opportunities to apply the skill being taught to reading short textbook passages and then go on to use multiple skills on the longer selections that conclude most chapters. As seen in Readers Tips boxes to focus on effective techniques for reading in different disciplines and the Interpret the Quote feature where students are asked to interpret a reading-opening quote based on the reading and their comprehension of the selection, students receive a wealth of support for academic success.Smith, Brenda D. is the author of 'Breaking Through College Reading', published 2006 under ISBN 9780321417602 and ISBN 0321417607.
