The comprehensive guide to reading, understanding, and retaining college-level material 

Breaking Through: College Reading – the lower-level book in the Smith/Morris two-book series – motivates readers and equips them with the skills necessary to achieve their 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 immediate modeling and opportunities to apply study and reading skills at a realistic level.

 

You’ll find that the 12th Edition upholds the philosophy and purpose of previous editions, but now in an even more contemporary way. It teaches effective reading techniques; offers extensive practice within the pages and online; provides independent, partner, and group activities; and engages learners with various reading selections that are pertinent to the college community.
