Description

By Beatrice S. Mikulecky and Linda Jeffries 

Reading Power’s unique four-part structure teaches students to view reading as a process. The series encourages students to develop a strategic approach to reading and to view reading in English as a problem-solving activity rather than a translation exercise.

  • Extensive Reading (Reading for Pleasure) lets students select their own reading materials to practice new strategies, build fluency, increase comprehension, and broaden their vocabulary.
  • Vocabulary Building trains students in a variety of strategies for learning new words, from personalized vocabulary lists to noticing collocations.
  • Comprehension Skills covers skimming, scanning, recognizing topics and main ideas, understanding sentences, and making inferences. Critical thinking skills (upper levels) involve targeted practice in inferential and analytical skills.
  • Reading Fluency helps students develop speed and flexibility in reading with high-interest short fiction and nonfiction selections.
