By Thomas E. Davis VINE VOICE on November 12, 2011
Format: Paperback
It seems I'm the first reviewer to write about the contents of this book rather than its condition or the services of its various sellers. Until now, not one of the ESL students who have left comments appears to have grasped the fact that Amazon reviews are intended to inform potential buyers about the quality of a product. I suppose this lack of comprehension on the part of English language learners is evidence of the crying need for the reading skills that this text imparts.

I teach at Seattle Central College, and our intensive English program has used John Langan's "Ten Steps" series for many years. The books are generally regarded as among the best for preparing students to tackle challenging academic reading. They effectively break down the process into discrete skills that build upon one another in order to help learners master the task of understanding and using information from college-level texts.

The ten steps may be covered in a quarter or a semester. Each chapter introduces one skill, including an ample supply of examples, exercises, review tests, and an extended final reading selection with an exam. Six mastery tests of graduated difficulty appear at the end of each chapter, and these pages are perforated so that they may be torn out and handed in for grading. Ten additional high-interest readings accompanied by tests are featured in an appendix, and even more exercises and exams are available online. The titles of the chapters are Vocabulary in Context, Main Ideas, Supporting Details, Implied Main Ideas, Relationships, Inferences, Purpose and Tone, Argument, Critical Reading, and Combined Skills.

Good teachers know that only by practicing as often as possible will reading skills advance.

Did not like the fact that it was already written in. I bought the book for the class I'm taking and it doesn't help that the answers are already there
