Description
For courses in Developmental Reading.

Bridging the Gap: College Reading is trusted for its scaffolded approach to building upon prior knowledge, or schemata, and its unmatched quality and quantity of exercises. The higher-level text in the acclaimed Smith/Morris two-book series, it gives students ample opportunities to apply their skills, ultimately building new “bridges” with text-to-text, text-to-world, and text-to-self connections.

The 13th Edition upholds the philosophy and approach of previous editions, but in an updated and contemporary manner. The authors encourage students to build on their previous reading experience to develop strategies for the demands of college reading; each chapter is a stepping stone to the next. Readings have been updated throughout and include many engaging, relevant topics pertinent to the college community. Examples from respected sources such as The Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times model strong writing, and lexile levels have been added next to longer readings.
