Designed for high-level reading courses, the primary focus of Reading for Thinking remains developing students' critical-thinking and reading skills. Flemming provides a thorough review of comprehension strategies before concentrating on critical-reading skills. This clear, logical sequence of instruction allows students to approach critical reading as a natural extension of essential comprehension skills rather than a discrete set of new strategies. The Fourth Edition reflects Flemming's ongoing commitment to stimulating, informative selections that motivate students to read. The text also provides a closer look at textbook excerpts and a more extensive discussion of arguments. Plus, end-of-chapter readings enable students to practice applying their critical-reading skills on long passages. At the end of every chapter, 37 tests enable students to assess their progress. Flemming introduces students to rhetorical questions, a subtle literary device often used in persuasive writing. She also covers imagery, the blend of fact and opinion, charged language, tone, and other key literary devices. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .
