With the dual focus of equipping students to interact with academic texts and helping them acquire vital academic vocabulary, Inside Reading gives students the tools they need to succeed in their academic courses.
Inside Reading approaches the goal of academic readiness from several directions:
* High-interest texts from academic content areas, such as psychology, engineering, the arts, computer science, and biology. * Reading skills relevant to the academic classroom, such as inference, working with graphs and tables, annotation, and recognizing context clues. * Systematic acquisition of the entire Academic Word List (AWL) through targeted varied receptive and productive activities, including work with word families, collocations, multiple meanings, and usage idiosyncrasies.
