Description

Becoming an Active Reader offers a three-in-one approach that combines a guide to rhetorical writing, an engaging reader, and a detailed grammar handbook, all in a single volume. The advice and exercises found throughout help students understand and apply the most effective reading and writing strategies, while the 39 thought-provoking readings encourage meaningful interaction with the written word. Annotated sample student essays, individual and collaborative exercises, checklists, and grammar hints appear throughout to help students navigate effective strategies for reading and writing.

Editorial Reviews

"I like that several of the readings address employability skills and information that our students need to be successful in the workplace. It allows us to address the hidden curriculum in the guise of communication and literacy development." --Julie Morris, Sheridan College

"The readings are relevant to the lives of the students and address the interests of students in a variety of disciplines. . . . They illustrate a variety of writing styles that demonstrate skills students can emulate." --Karen Pike, Conestoga College
