Description: Becoming an Active Reader: A Complete Resource for Reading and Writing is the latest addition to OUP Canada's introductory composition lineup. A shorter, more accessible version of The Active Reader: Strategies for Academic Reading and Writing, this new volume retains the strengths of itsparent book while presenting content and instruction in a manner well suited for college-level students nationwide.Becoming an Active Reader offers a three-in-one approach: it combines guidelines for rhetorical writing, a reader, and a grammar handbook in a single volume. Of particular note is the reader, which presents 38 college-friendly selections from a variety of disciplines and using a variety of argumentstyles, all with pre- and post-reading questions. In addition, annotated sample student essays; individual and collaborative exercises; and checklists, FAQs, and grammar hints are found throughout to help readers navigate the most effective strategies for reading and writing at the post-secondarylevel. What distinguishes Becoming an Active Reader, however, is Eric Henderson's hallmark approach of teaching students how to think critically about the choices they make when reading and writing rather than following rules by rote. It is this underlying instructional philosophy that will setBecoming an Active Reader apart from its competitors.
