Reading and Researching America uses autobiographical readings by famous American historical figures as a foundation for developing the writing and research skills of students engaged or preparing to engage in academic study. The book includes six authentic reading passages from original sources written by well-known Americans like Benjamin Franklin, Frederick Douglass, Andrew Carnegie, and Jane Addams. These readings are meant to be used with the Yellow Pages, a research skills-building section. With a review of paragraph and essay form and an introduction to research resources and writing skills, the exercises in the Yellow Pages allow students to conduct research and to develop personal and research writing from the historical readings. Reading and Researching America is intended for students who have already studied English grammar and basic essay form and are ready to extend these skills into more authentic contexts. Students who use this book will learn the writing and research skills to work comfortably and independently in academically oriented classes, and they will learn about important people and events of American history at the same time.
