The Reading-Writing Workshop: Strategies for the College Classroom focuses specifically on improving students' writing and reading skills for academic success. High-interest readings from a variety of genres have been chosen to engage students in critical thinking. Each chapter is organized around a single topic and contains two or three readings. Journal questions, pre-reading activities, and comprehension and vocabulary activities accompany each reading.
The Reading-Writing Workshop features strategies that successful students use in reading and writing assignments. For example, students are taught to annotate what they read. Chapters contain Vocabulary Strategy and Writing Workshop sections to help students prepare for more advanced coursework. The text focuses on the paragraph as the foundation for academic writing, and vocabulary work exposes students to the Academic Word List.
The Reading-Writing Workshop is an excellent tool for teachers of intermediate to high- intermediate students needing practice in college-level academic reading and writing.
