Breaking Through is your comprehensive guide to reading, understanding and retaining college-level material. Serving as the lower-level book in the Smith/Morris 2-book series, the text is designed to equip you with the skills to achieve your academic and career goals. It emphasizes the building of prior knowledge, or schemata, one of the most critical elements in helping developing readers achieve. The use of actual college textbook passages also provides you with immediate modeling and opportunities to apply study and reading skills at a realistic level.
The 12th Edition upholds the philosophy and purpose of previous editions in an even more contemporary way, providing a variety of engaging reading selections pertinent to the college community. Guided by the authors, you'll learn effective reading techniques, engage in extensive practice (within the pages and online), and participate in independent, partner, and group activities.
