Good selection of brief articles and short stories. The thing I think I'll appreciate the most as I use this text in my RD 120 ("Reading in Content Areas") class is the way the editors have linked the entries through guided questions and the "Connecting Cultures" section at the end of each unit.

In constructing my syllabus, I elected to pair readings together for contrast or similarity of theme. This means I'm not teaching the text "in order," but it doesn't matter. Each article usually relates to several others elsewhere in the book.
