Reading comprehension

"oh, I didn't read the book!"

How many times have we heard that?!

Many professors, including me, recognize that an increasing number of students who come to us have problems with reading. And often that means that they simply give up and do not read.

Sometimes the issue is a learning disability, sometimes it is poor preparation, often it's because students who previously would not have even tried to go to college are now finding opportunities and reasons to do so, sometimes English is not a student's first language, and well, the list goes on.

No matter the reason, it seems helpful to provide students with a textbook that features characteristics that engage and support readers of all levels.

Over many years, I've consulted with reading teachers, ESL instructors, students who come to me with reading problems, and a variety of learning experts, in an effort to find what we can do with our textbook to enable it to serve readers at all levels.

Here are a few of the things we've done to make our textbook accessible to all readers. Click the hyperlinks to find out more.
