Just like its predecessor, Thinking Critically helps students improve reading, writing, and research skills while exploring and analyzing major global issues. Although many of the same topics are explored in this second edition—world hunger, global health, gender equality, regional conflict, cultural heritage, and immigration policies—all 31 authentic readings in the second edition are new. New topics included in this edition are cybersecurity, climate change, education reform, leadership, and human rights. Each chapter contains two or three readings (from print and online news sources, journals, and blogs) designed to raise rather than provide answers; a vocabulary review and discussion questions for each reading; a reaction writing task; a question on the topic to research; a writing assignment for a specific academic or business genre (with models in an appendix); speaking activities (oral presentation, debate, or role-play); and a Thinking about It task. The Thinking about It task calls on students’ ability to evaluate a complex issue with objectivity and to propose a realistic approach, making this textbook good preparation for academic courses that require critical-thinking skills to express opinions both orally and in writing. Several new academic/business written genres (abstract, fact sheet, briefing paper, report on a survey) have also been added.

Step Up to Academic Reading takes a skill-based approach, with each chapter focusing on a particular set of skills that are developed gradually, often progressing from sentences to paragraphs to longer passages. The book covers skills that are essential for success in the academic world - they teach the reader to approach an academic text in an engaged manner by analyzing the purpose of a text's publication, the opinions expressed by the author, and the ways in which opinions are expressed. Typically, the students are requested to evaluate the quality of support for the ideas set forth by the author, and to form their own opinions on the issue. Students are taught that they should not read mechanically, processing the printed information merely for the sake of answering comprehension questions. Instead, they learn to employ a series of reading skills that will empower them to think critically about the way in which an argument is presented. Chapter 5 is unique to this book, introducing a research article as a separate and important academic genre. Students are asked to consider an author's credentials, the disclosure of possible financial interests, a reference list, and other supporting information. The final chapter integrates the skills through a series of texts, employing academic-style reading activities, such as constructing an outline of a text and summarizing a text. Here, as in other activities throughout the book, the students have to synthesize the information from two texts on a related topic and to contrast them.
