Joining a Community of Readers Houghton Mifflin Company
A contemporary thematic reader, Joining a Community of Readers offers a holistic approach to developing reading skills and building schema. Joining a Community of Readers maintains a constant focus on key skills while providing ample practice with shorter and longer readings. The real-life context for skill instruction engages students as they are able to stay with a single theme throughout each instructive unit. The authors' PRO reading strategy (Prepare to Read, Read Actively and Reflect, and Organize to learn) places an emphasis on pre-reading, active reading, and post-reading activities throughout the text and gets students applying the skills in the context of the reading process. Significant attention is especially given to vocabulary skills and finding the main idea and support. New! "The Reader's Toolkit" appendix includes instruction and practice on reading visual aids, navigating and evaluating web sites, and offers test taking tips. New! Chapter on critical reading focuses on the theme of social connectedness and community. New! Chapter 8 now focuses solely on inferences and has been enhanced with a discussion on making inferences from visual clues as well as new exercises. New! Web-based activities direct students to do interesting and relevant work online. New! Fifteen new readings are included in this edition. New! Cumulative mastery tests can be used as pre- or post-test instruments to assess the core skills covered in the text. New! Emphasis on distinguishing between major and minor supporting details helps students avoid being overwhelmed by too much information. Open-ended "Making Connections" questions ask students to relate what they are reading to their prior knowledge of the subject. "Organize to Learn" feature teaches students learning strategies and study skills, including how to organize their thoughts and classroom material. "Language Tips," useful notes on reading and language issues, help non-native English speakers. Collaborative activities provide abundant opportunities for group work and collaboration. End-of chapter review material includes a "Putting It Together" chart that graphically summarizes the skills the chapter has introduced, "Reviewing Skills" writing assignments, and post-reading activities for further group work. Two mastery tests in each chapter give students further opportunities to master skills and to evaluate their progress. Additional readings at the end of the book allow students to extend their learning

Public Sociologies Reader Rowman & Littlefield
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
At an earlier time, sociologists C. Wright Mills, W. E. Du Bois, and Jane Addams loudly protested injustices and inequities in American society, provided critiques and analyses of systems of oppression, and challenged sociologists to be responsible critics and constructive commentators. These giants of American sociology would have applauded the 2004 meetings of the American Sociological Association. The theme of the meetings, Public Sociology, presided over by President Michael Burawoy, sparked lively debate and continues to be a spur for research and theory, and a focal point of ongoing discussions about what sociology is and should be. This volume advances these discussions and debates, and proposes how they can be further sharpened and developed. Some authors in this volume clarify the distinctive roles that Public Sociologists can play in the discipline, in the classroom, and in larger society. Others provide critical analyses, focusing, for example, on aspects of American society and institutions, global corporate actors, sweatshop practices, international neoliberal organizations, migration policies, and U.S. environmental policies. Others advance new ways of thinking about global interdependencies that include indigenous groups, peasants, as well as societies in industrialized and developing states, and international organizations. Still others propose visions of transformative processes and practices that are progressively affirmative, even activist -- in the spirit of 'A Better World is Possible!!' This volume provides an overview of some of the major debates in sociology today and places emphasis on the importance of human rights in the 'One (globalized) World' we live in today. Authors engage these debates with spirited enthusiasm and write exceptionally clearly about those topics that may be new to American readers.
