Efficient and Flexible Reading teaches readers how to vary their approach to written texts based on the material and their purpose for reading. In addition to instruction in literal and critical comprehension skills, vocabulary, and study skills, Efficient and Flexible Reading teaches readers how to identify text structures and thought patterns for more efficient learning. Emphasizing reading as an active thinking process, the text presents systems for monitoring concentration, comprehension, and recall, encouraging students to assess the reading assignment and to select the appropriate strategy to suit the situation. The seventh edition expands coverage of the most crucial skills in both basic reading comprehension and higher-level critical reading: main ideas, patterns of organization, transitions, and critical analysis. For those who want to improve basic reading skills.
