Incorporating a wealth of practice exercises and high-interest readings, Reading for Thinking focuses on improving reading skills at the micro- level and moving on to the macro-level. Over half of the book is devoted to evaluating, drawing inferences, and identifying tone, bias, and purpose. The Sixth Edition continues to focus on developing students' comprehension and critical-thinking skills. Flemming uses a carefully designed sequence of explanations and exercises that allows students to approach critical reading as a natural extension of essential comprehension skills, rather than a discrete set of new strategies. Armed with the ability to both analyze and evaluate a writer's work, students apply those twin intellectual tools to Flemming's trademark high-interest readings to determine purpose, analyze evidence, detect bias, recognize tone, and compare opposing points of view.
