Guide to College Reading focuses on the key areas of reading comprehension, vocabulary improvement, and textbook reading. Critical thinking and metacognition are hallmarks of the McWhorter series. Critical thinking is incorporated throughout the book in instruction, exercises, and readings. Metacognitive activities include teaching readers how to evaluate their own learning styles to increase their ability to read college-level material successfully. Exercises that ask readers to respond by writing sentences and paragraphs after reading help make the critical connection between these two activities. umerous diagrams and drawings help readers visualize how reading material can be organized. High-interest photographs and artwork appeal to the visual learner. Chapter-ending readings give immediate practice for chapter skills and aid in transferring these skills to actual reading situations. Learning Style Tips reinforce material introduced earlier throughout the book and teach readers how to apply knowledge of their individual learning styles to learn new skills. For those interested in developing their reading skills at the 6th-9th grade level.

Bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit blieb uns der Zugang zu vielen der interessanten Aspekte des Denkens von Kindern verwehrt. Philosophen haben sich Jahrhunderte lang darum gestritten, ob Säuglinge die Welt als "strahlendes und dröhnendes Durcheinander" sehen oder ganz ähnlich wie ältere Kinder und Erwachsene. Erst mit der Entwicklung aufschlußreicher experimenteller Methoden in den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Antwort deutlich. Sogar Neugeborene sehen bestimmte Aspekte der Welt recht klar und mit 6 Monaten ähnelt die Wahrnehmung von Säuglingen der von Erwachsenen. Dies und andere Erkenntnisse über das Denken von Kindern sind Gegenstand dieses Buches.

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.

Als Dreijährige lässt sie einen Steinregen auf ihr Elternhaus niederregnen, weil ihre Mutter ihr in einem Anfall religiösem Wahns nach dem Leben trachtet. Als Sechzehnjährige muss sie einen Augenblick tiefster Demütigung erleben. Schon immer von ihren Mitschülern wegen ihrer scheuen zurückhaltenden Art gehänselt, wird sie auf dem Abschlussball der Schule das Opfer eines bösen Streichs. Schmerz, Enttäuschung, Wut treiben Carrie zum Äußersten, die beseelt und besessen ist von einer unheimlichen Gabe: Mit schierer Kraft ihres Willens entfesselt sie ein Inferno, gegen das die Hölle ein lieblicher Garten Eden ist. Das ist Carrie - beseelt, besessen von einer unheimlichen Gabe mit ungeheurer Tragweite und furchtbaren Folgen.
