Note: This version of The Critical Reader reflects the material tested on the current version of the SAT. If you are preparing for the new (P)SAT, you can purchase the new edition at http://www.amazon.com/Critical-Reader-2nd-Erica-Meltzer/dp/1515182061. Intended to demystify what is often considered the most challenging section of the SAT in a straightforward, logical manner, The Critical Reader includes: a list of 300 top words, a roots list, and a "second meanings" list, along with 75 practice sentence completions; a complete chapter devoted to each type of question followed by extensive exercises designed to reinforce the skills and concepts presented; and strategies for understanding difficult passages, locating important information, and identifying correct and incorrect answers more quickly and confidently. To allow students to apply the strategies and techniques outlined in this book to College Board material while focusing on the specific areas in which they need to improve, this book also includes a list of all the Critical Reading questions in the Official College Board Guide, 2nd Edition (2009), grouped both by category and by test. It is also recommended that students use this book in conjunction with They Say/I Say: The Moves that Matter in Academic Writing (http://www.amazon.com/They-Say-Academic-Writing-Edition/dp/0393935841). More about The Critical Reader: The result of nearly a decade's worth of of tutoring experience,The Critical Reader grew out of three major observations: 1) The SAT is a test about arguments. 2) The SAT represents most high school students' first encounter with college-level reading. 3) Every passage has two authors: the author of the passage and the author of the test. The Critical Reader is the only book that approaches the SAT from a college perspective while simultaneously breaking down and reinforcing the reading skills that the highest scorers take for granted. Many students preparing for the SAT find Critical Reading both frustrating and baffling because it seems unrelated to the work they do in high school English class. In reality, though, the SAT tests skills that are important for college. Critical Reading passages are based on the type of academic "conversation" on which college reading is based -- reading that requires students to juggle multiple viewpoints within the space of a few paragraphs, all while navigating challenging vocabulary and sentence structure as well as unfamiliar and sophisticated concepts. Building on the templates in Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein's They Say/I Say: The Moves that Matter in Academic Writing, The Critical Reader teaches students to use a variety of textual clues to identify key information and distinguish between ideas that the author agrees with and ones that the author disagrees with. Unlike other guides, which rely primarily either on works whose copyright has expired (outdated, hard in the wrong way) or on passages written specifically for that prep book (too straightforward), The Critical Reader aims to prepare students for exactly what they will find on the actual test. All of the passages are excerpted either from books/articles by authors whose work has appeared on College Board exams, or from recent works whose content/style are reflective of the material on the exam. Finally, The Critical Reader teaches students to "read the SAT" -- that is, to use the patterns inherent in the test to identify answers likely to be correct and incorrect with maximum efficiency, and to reduce the test to its simplest terms.

This is the only reading inventory on the market to support the treatment of reading as a thinking process through questions and assessments that measure not only readers' ability to recall facts, but also whether they can draw logical conclusions about those facts and respond critically to those conclusions. This book includes both narrative and expository readers' passages for use with pre-K readers through readers in grade 9; and is written in an accessible, inviting style. Through the use of longer passages, multi-level assessments, and case studies, the authors provide a truly effective means to secure a differential analysis of a child's reading comprehension performance. Three distinct levels of comprehension questions: text-based, inferential, and critical-assist in grouping readers by ability levels, from simple recall to critical engagement with text. Case studies of three levels of diagnostic analysis helps teachers understand the difference between readers who are having genuine difficulty and readers who are simply reluctant. Rubrics for retelling and for fluency stress that word recognition must be assessed within the context of comprehension. Inclusion of the simplified miscue analysis technique highlights both the reader's strategies and his/her orientation. FEATURES: Automated Scoring and Interpretation Interview (ASII)--Teachers who use the ASII can include the formatted printouts as part of a student's academic records. Tutorials for Scoring Miscues, Retellings and Comprehension Items DVD-ROM Video Demonstrations of the CRI--Gives teachers access to demonstrations of the proper techniques for administering the CRI. The DVD also makes the CRI easier to learn for teachers who would like to administer the assessment but who have limited experience in using informal reading inventories. In addition to video demonstrations, the DVD includes two extensive case studies that demonstrate the capabilities of the CRI as a diagnostic instrument. Expanded Number of Passages per Grade Level--this feature will allow users to gather pre-test and posttest information about a reader's performance, something that they could not easily do with the original CRI. It also allows for some flexibility in test administration. If a teacher feels, for example, that a student has simply not connected with the topic of a given passage or even has too much background knowledge has the option to test the child with a different passage. Expanded Number of Grade Levels Assessed--this expanded range will allow users to assess older readers with a great deal more precision than was possible with the original CRI. Expanded Technical Chapter--users who have been reluctant to consider the CRI because of the fear that the instrument has not been established statistically as a valid and reliable measure can put those fears to rest.

This book is for the clinician who wants to write. It is for the physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner who sees patients and who wants to contribute to the medical l- erature. You may be an assistant professor aspiring to p- motion or a clinician in private practice who seeks the personal enrichment that writing can bring. If you are new to medical writing or even if you have been the author of some articles or book chapters and seek to improve your abilities, this book can help you. Who am I that I can make this assertion and write this book, both fairly presumptuous? Here’s my reasoning. As a practicing physician, writing has been my avocation; unlike the authors of many other writing books, I am not a journal editor. Over 14 years in private practice and 26 years in a- demic medicine, I have written all the major models described in this book: review articles, case reports, edito- als, letters to the editor, book reviews, book chapters, edited books, authored books, and reports of clinical research st- ies. Most have been published. Not all. Perhaps my most signi?cant quali?cation is not that I have managed to p- duce a lengthy curriculum vitae. In my opinion, what is more important for you, the reader, is that I have made all the errors. That’s right, the mistakes.
