Dedication & Acknowledgments





            This book is dedicated to the students and teachers who have used ACTIVE Skills for Reading over the past
            10 years. Since 2002/2003 when the first edition of ACTIVE Skills for Reading was published, thousands of
            students and teachers have used the book. I know that I had no idea that the series would be this popular
            and that we would reach the stage of publishing a third edition.
            The pedagogical framework for this series is as viable today as it has ever been. As students and teachers
            use each of the elements of ACTIVE, stronger reading will result.

            My associations with the editorial team in Singapore continue to be some of my greatest professional
            relationships. I express appreciation to Sean Bermingham, Derek Mackrell, Andrew Robinson, and Sarah Tan
            for their commitment to excellence in publishing. I also express appreciation to Jenny Wilsen and John Murn
            for their commitment to helping the third edition be stronger than the two previous editions.

            The third edition of Active Skills for Reading maintains the ACTIVE approach developed by reading specialist
            Professor Neil J Anderson, while introducing several significant improvements.
            This new edition now has a full color design, presenting the series' content in an attractive and student-
            friendly way. Approximately half of the passages have been replaced with new and engaging topics; the rest
            have been updated. It also has a wide variety of text types including articles, journals, blogs, and interviews,
            with later levels featuring readings based on content from National Geographic.

            Each of the 24 chapters now includes a "Motivational Tips" section from Professor Anderson, reflecting his
            current research into student motivation and learning. His reading charts have also been updated to more
            accurately track students' reading fluency and comprehension progress.

            Active Skills for Reading, Third Edition features an Assessment CD-ROM with ExamView® Pro, which has
            been revised to reflect the needs of learners preparing for standardized tests.
            This latest edition of Active Skills for Reading series is designed to further enhance students' progress,
            helping them to become more confident, independent-and active-readers.
