These readings are complemented by practical exercises and activities that enhance the teaching-learning process. Academic content excerpted from Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high school textbooks familiarizes students with academic subjects across the curriculum and teaches them the reading skills necessary to succeed in those disciplines.
