Reading is a key skill for all students and the foundation for future success at school and at work. Developing reading versatility, First Canadian Edition, teaches the tools that are essential to improving reading, writing, and studying. From vocabulary building to interpreting propaganda and literature, this text covers all elements of reading: the literal, critical, and affective. Timed readings allow students to see their own progress, while exercises provide practice in skills such as inductive and deductive reasoning, critical thinking, summarizing, and distinguishing main ideas. Reading selections have been chosen with Canadian content in mind, so that students can discuss Canadian issues while developing their reading skills and appreciation of literature. Developing reading versatility also includes a free four-month subscription to InfoTrac college edition. This online database provides opportunities for further reading and research and is only available from Thomson Learning. Nelson's English Resource Centre provides free resources that will assist students in all aspects of the writing process.
