With reading selections from a variety of disciplines with high enrollment patterns at U.S. colleges, this text uses reading selections from authentic Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high schools texts. These readings are complemented by practical exercises and activities that enhance the teaching-learning process. Academic content excerpted from Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high school textbooks familiarizes students with academic subjects across the curriculum and teaches them the reading skills necessary to succeed in those disciplines. Six chapters of readings in psychology, informational technology, sociology, geology, humanities, and science present concepts and language that many students will encounter in future college courses. The overarching theme of College Reading 1 is Society. The Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success competencies, which are based on competencies developed by ESL instructors and administrators in Florida, California, and Connecticut, provide an underlying structure for EAP courses by ensuring a clear articulation of objectives throughout the series. All materials classroom were tested and approved by a board of adjunct instructors to ensure easy-to-use for both full- and part-time instructors. In addition, each book in the series underwent extensive review by ESL experts across the country. Master Student Tips are excerpted from the market-leading first-year orientation book, Becoming a Master Student. A wide variety of easy-to-implement assessment tools, designed for both instructor use and self-assessment by students, include student self-assessment at the end of each chapter, student self-assessment tests on the student web site, downloadable tests and quizzes for instructors on the password-protected Houghton Mifflin instructor web site.
