Yes, in 5 - 5 strategies, that is, to improve your ability to read almost anything. From matching your approach to the source, to previewing, to taking notes (like a detective, lawyer, and judge), crack the code of this essential skill!

Here's some of what you'll find:

*         Interactive links to jump to the desired section of the video.

*         Full transcript available for download and used for closed captions.

*         Exercises designed to practice the strategies with textbook excerpts included in the "Downloads" section from 5 disciplines as well as one from an argumentative text.

*         A "References" tab with research that we specifically drew on or that otherwise supports many of the strategies we are suggesting.
