JOINING A COMMUNITY OF READERS focuses on building key reading skills while providing ample practice with shorter and longer readings. The real-life context and engaging themes will motivate you as you work with each new skill in the text. The authors' PRO reading strategy (Prepare to Read, Read Actively and Reflect, and Organize to Learn) places an emphasis on pre-reading, active reading, and post-reading activities throughout the text--all skills that are essential to the reading process. The Sixth Edition includes a brand new theme sure to capture your attention: "Drugs and Our Society."
