Reading Processes and Structures, the companion volume to Writing Processes and Structures, contains a variety of reading materials and skill development exercises to improve students' cultural literacy and prepare them for college-level readings. Reading Processes and Structures offers more than 35 readings that span genres, from newspaper and magazine articles to poetry and short fiction. The passages include many original, never-before published readings, along with pieces from well-known writers like Sandra Cisneros, Roald Dahl, Tim O'Brien, Robert Pinsky, Amy Tan, and Alice Walker. Some writings deal with serious social issues while others examine humorous aspects of life in America.

This textbook is divided into two parts: The Basics and Reading Units. In The Basics, students will find fundamental definitions and learning strategies and an overview of the parts of speech and literary terms. Each of the six Reading Units contains reading passages equal to or longer than those on the Next-Generation TOEFL® Test; readings can be used for lively classroom discussion and individual study. Reading Processes and Structures also includes pre-reading and vocabulary activities, as well as exercises designed to check student understanding of reading themes and details.
