Academic Encounters Second Edition is an academic preparation series that uses a sustained content approach. There are two books in the series for each content focus: an Academic Encounters title that teaches reading, study skills, and writing; and an Academic Listening Encounters title that concentrates on developing students’ listening, note-taking, and discussion skills. The two books may be used independently, or they may be used together to form a complete integrated-skills course.
