The Glencoe Reader Course 5 Workbook


The Glencoe Reader is a special kind of book - one you can actually interact with and make your own. Go ahead. Circle, underline, or highlight parts of a selection that grab your attention or that are hard to understand. Jot down words you want to remember. Fill the margins with your own thoughts and questions. You can mark up this reader in a way that works for you - a way that helps you understand and remember what you read.
