About this product
- DescriptionDeveloped for students at the 10-12 reading level, MINDSCAPES: CRITICAL READING SKILLS AND STRATEGIES, 2E helps students become stronger readers based on how the brain best processes and learns information. Christine Evans Carter has developed a powerful approach to building reading skills that is based on the latest research in brain-based learning; when students recognize the structure and organization of information, they maximize their learning power. This focus on text structure provides a scaffold onto which developmental-level readers can apply new kwledge. Information is presented in a carefully crafted sequence that serves to build upon prior kwledge and expand understanding of skills and strategies in a recursive manner. In addition, each chapter includes study skills and discipline-specific vocabulary and reading strategies to help students succeed in all of their courses.
