A flexible reading text that helps you become better, more efficient readers by applying skills to real sources


Now in its 4th Edition Making Reading Relevant  is a brief, intermediate-level reading text that manages to address all of the topics and issues needed to conduct productive and meaningful courses in developmental reading. The authors designed  Making Reading Relevant  to be flexible: it may be used as the primary textbook for a course, or as a reference tool to supplement the use of outside reading materials and primary sources. Overall, the authors stress the application of reading strategies, using primary reading sources as the basis of the content, so that you learn to become a better, more efficient reader–not by just reading about how to read, but by applying skills to reading real sources. The 4th Edition includes chapter updates, along with new examples, readings, and updated vocabulary resources.
