A mid-level text, the Sixth Edition of Reading Power balances timed readings with extensive instructional guidance and pedagogical support. Students calculate their reading rate by timing themselves, and test their comprehension by answering Getting the Facts, Getting the Meaning, and other questions. Leaning on Context and Making the Words Yours activities help students understand difficult vocabulary, and Leaning on Parts focuses on important prefix, root, and suffix rules.
