By focusing on activities such as reading for gist, scanning, predicting, and responding to what has been read, this book helps students to become more aware of the different strategies used in reading. The units are arranged thematically, with a variety of texts that include excerpts from books, newspaper and magazine articles, a fable, a short story, and a short play. There is an introduction to the teacher and answers where appropriate.
