Reading Matters1 uses stimulating, level-appropriate readings and a communicative, integrated-skills approach to develop fluency and accuracy in academic reading. Organized into thematic units, the readings feature compelling, contemporary issues in culture, science, the environment, and business. Extensive practice exercises accompany the selections to promote critical thinking and help students understand the nature of different texts, master vocabulary for academic and professional success, and learn how to access information in the media and on the Internet. The Second Edition features new and updated selections in theExpanding Your Languagesection of each chapter. The lower levels of the series include authentic and adapted reading passages while the upper-level readings are all authentic. This variety of texts broadens students' awareness of different reading types and gives instructors the flexibility to choose selections that best suit and/or challenge their students. A multi-faceted approach to readinginvolving interaction with peers and with a variety of texts both in and outside of the classroompromotes active communication skills. Reading activities emphasize strategies, check comprehension, prompt written or spoken responses, and provide ample opportunities to compare and contrast different perspectives on the reading selections. A wide range of selectionsincluding articles, interviews, surveys, essays, and chartsappeals to different learning styles and interests. Vocabulary-rich readings expand students' language-processing skills and prepare students to transition seamlessly into a chosen academic program.
