SUMMARY

Dedicated to meeting the academic needs of high-intermediate- to advanced-level students, this book prepares students to take on the demands of college-level reading. As part of the 20-book Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success series, College Reading 4 helps students learn to comprehend academic reading in a range of disciplines, expand academic vocabulary, develop organizational structures--such as connectors and transitions--to better comprehend reading passages, recognize cultural references, develop dictionary skills, and build on successful study skills. With reading selections from a variety of disciplines with high enrollment patterns at U.S. colleges, this text uses reading selections from authentic Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high schools texts. These readings are complemented by practical exercises and activities that enhance the teaching-learning process. Academic content excerpted from Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high school textbooks familiarizes students with academic subjects across the curriculum and teaches them the reading skills necessary to succeed in those disciplines. Six chapters of readings and lectures in literature, study skills, psychology, natural sciences, humanities, and education present concepts and language that many students will encounter in future college courses. The overarching theme of College Reading 4 is Memory and Learning. The Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success competencies, which are based on competencies developed by ESL instructors and administrators in Florida, California, and Connecticut, provide an underlying structure for EAP courses by ensuring a clear articulation of objectives throughout the series. All materials classroom were tested and approved by a board of adjunct instructors to ensure easy-to-use for both full- and part-time instructors. In addition, each book in the series underwent extensive review by ESL experts across the country. Master Student Tips are excerpted from the market-leading first-year orientation book, Becoming a Master Student. A wide variety of easy-to-implement assessment tools, designed for both instructor use and self-assessment by students, include student self-assessment at the end of each chapter, student self-assessment tests on the student web site, downloadable tests and quizzes for instructors on the password-protected Houghton Mifflin instructor web site. Power Grammar is taught by highlighting selected language patterns that occur frequently in the lecture. Exercises give students practice in understanding and using the grammar.Cynthia M. Schuemann is the author of 'College Reading 4 (Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success) (Bk. 4)', published 2006 under ISBN 9780618230235 and ISBN 0618230238.
