Academic Literacy combines a mid-level handbook of reading strategies with textbook readings from six different disciplines to help students succeed across the college curriculum. This useful combination of readings and handbook allows instructors great teaching flexibility. In addition to the many academic readings, Academic Literacy also includes a substantive apparatus of detailed instructions and exercises, techniques for active listening and note taking, short-answer questions, tips on how to prepare for tests, and tests that engage students' critical-thinking skills. It especially emphasizes self-assessment as a way to develop good reading habits.
