A Community of Readers Description

Focused on interesting, contemporary themes, A COMMUNITY OF READERS presents college-level reading skills through readings from textbooks and from authors who write about real-life issues relevant to students. A COMMUNITY OF READERS, the second of two books in the Alexander reading series, offers guided, detailed instruction on all steps in the reading and learning process: reading, discussing and reflecting, writing, and critical thinking. The authors use a unique system to teach the reading process called PRO (Prepare to Read, Read Actively and Reflect, and Organize to Learn), which gives students a concrete learning process to follow. Each chapter introduces a key reading skill (e.g., identifying main ideas, building vocabulary, understanding inferences) and focuses on one theme. This thematic organization helps students develop schema while improving their reading skills. The Sixth Edition maintains the focus on student participation in the classroom community and covers basic to high level reading skills including examining fact and opinion, understanding bias, and thinking critically.
