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.
