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.

The ESL Writer’s Handbook is a reference work for ESL students who are taking college-level courses. Because its purpose is to provide help with the broad variety of writing questions students may have when working on school assignments, the text focuses on English for Academic Purposes. Unlike other handbooks on the market, this book’s sole purpose is to address the issues of second language learners. This spiral-bound Handbook complements a student writer’s dictionary, thesaurus, and grammar reference book. It would be suitable as a text for an advanced ESL writing course when used together with the companion Workbook (978-0-472-03404-8). The Handbook is concise and easily navigated; is accessible, with clear and direct explanatory language; features information on both APA and MLA styles (including a sample paper for each); and includes many examples from ESL student writers to provide realistic models. Included as special features in the Handbook are: • The topic selection is based on ESL writers’ needs as observed by the authors over many years. • The coverage of topics is more complete than the limited amount usually provided for ESL writers in first language or L1 handbooks. • The explanatory language is appropriate for ESL students, in contrast to the more complex and idiomatic language of other English handbooks. • The level of detail is more manageable for ESL students, compared to what is in other English handbooks. Many of the examples of paragraphs, essays, research papers, and exercise sentences were written by ESL students; this encourages users of this Handbook to realize that they can also become effective writers.

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.

The ability to understand and be understood when communicating with professors and with native speakers is crucial to academic success. Academic Interactions focuses on actual academic speaking events, particularly classroom interactions and office hours, and gives students practice improving the ways that they communicate in a college/university setting. Academic Interactions addresses skills like using names and names of locations correctly on campus, giving directions, understanding instructors and their expectations, interacting during office hours, participating in class and in seminars, and delivering formal and informal presentations. In addition, advice is provided for communicating via email with professors and working in groups with native speakers (including negotiating tasks in groups). The text uses transcripts from MICASE (the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English) to ensure that students learn the vocabulary and communication strategies that will be most effective in their academic pursuits. Units also feature language use issues like ellipsis, hedging, and apologies. The book is packaged with a DVD that provides models for successful academic interactions.
