Published in part with Dorling Kindersley (DK) to combine instruction with high-interest visuals and graphics, Reading For Life encourages students to “explore” how and why mastering reading skills relates to their lives and future goals.  

Reading For Life is shaped by two research-based assumptions: students are most successful when they are active learners and students are most engaged when the material they are reading is connected to their lives and their goals. To support the first premise, author Corinne Fennessy engages students in activities-based learning in order to help them master key reading skills.  Students learn by doing, not by reading extensively about how to do something.  For the latter principle, Fennessy focuses each chapter on a career topic and uses carefully chosen “real-world” reading selection so that students can start to think about possible careers and setting goals.  The end result is students' mastery of key reading skills and strategies while discovering connections to the readings themselves.
