VOICES AND VALUES, 2/e

ISBN 978-1-59194-443-0
480 pages
Net price: $24.00

Forty lively and thought-provoking
essays students will want to read
READING LEVEL 9–13

Features of the book
l

Readings that celebrate human values
Timely, engaging, thought-provoking essays celebrate old-fashioned human values in a
style that never preaches.
For example, in the first selection, “The Blind Vet,” an author describes the despair and
helplessness felt by an injured veteran and the steps he took to regain his independence.
The story becomes an argument for the importance of perseverance—never giving up
despite the odds—and the need for love and compassion. Other essays—in a style that
never preaches—cover such values as gratitude, personal growth, fairness, responsibility,
kindness, courage, common sense, and moderation.

l

High-quality activities
Accompanying the selections is a series of activities that will help students improve their
reading, thinking, and writing skills. Activities include:
l  freewriting

l  discussion

l  vocabulary

topics
questions
l  reading comprehension questions

l  paragraph

questions
assignments
l  essay assignments

Sample topic sentences and thesis statements, along with specific suggestions for providing
support, help students to succeed on the writing assignments. Finally, fifteen additional
assignments ask students to read two of the essays and write a paper based on both.
l

Versatility
The book would be ideal for a reading/writing course. It can also be used as a core text in
a reading course or as a reader in a writing course covering paragraphs, essays, or both.

l

Handy supplements
An annotated Instructor’s Edition of the book includes answers and explanations, making
the book very easy for teachers to use. Available at TP’s online Learning Center are
teaching suggestions, answers to the Vocabulary and Reading Checks, suggested answers
to the discussion questions, guided writing assignments, and five additional readings.

2

Changes in the Second Edition of Voices and Values . . .
l

Twenty new readings.  Half of the readings have been replaced with new selections, many

taken from current newspapers and magazines. These new readings speak directly to
21st-century concerns. In addition, several of the readings from the first edition have been
updated.
l

Added questions on the writer’s craft.  These questions, located at the end of each Reading
Check, will help students further sharpen both their reading and their writing skills.

l

A full-color design.  Color has been carefully used throughout—not as window dressing, but

to add clarity and readability to the different parts of each chapter in the book.
l

Appealing visuals.  Because so many students today are visual learners, a photograph or
other illustration has been added to each reading to help engage students’ interest.

l

New third-person writing assignments.  Half of the paragraph assignments and half of the
essay assignments are first-person; the other half of the assignments are third-person. Many
of these include suggestions for Internet research, thereby permitting students to become
familiar with using Google and other search engines to gather material for a paper.

l

A new unit on the research paper.  Unit Six contains material on writing a research paper
with sources, as well as a sample research paper in MLA format.

Here is the

first reading
in the book.

The Blind Vet
Gail Hoffman

Preview
When Nick returned home from the war in Afghanistan blinded by a bomb, he knew
his life would never be the same. In so many ways, Nick would have to start all over
again, and he wasn’t certain he could do it. When Nick’s friends slowly stopped
coming by to see him, Nick fell into a sadness that threatened to destroy all his hopes.
He wanted to give up. But one very special person refused to give up on Nick.

Words to Watch
rivulet (4): small stream
IED (6): improvised explosive device, a homemade roadside bomb that caused
significant casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan
apprehension (8): fear
sufficiently (23): enough

When Nick boarded the bus, everyone
looked at him. A few people shook their
heads in pity. It didn’t seem right that
such a young man should have so much
trouble climbing the three short steps up
to the bus aisle.
2
“Why does that man have that white
stick?” a small girl asked her mother
loudly.
3
“Shh!” the mother said quickly. “It’s
not polite to talk about him, honey. He’s
blind.”
4
But Nick had heard the little girl. In
fact, he could feel everyone’s eyes on
him even though he couldn’t see them.
Using his cane, Nick carefully measured
1

the height of each step. Gripping the
handrail with white knuckles, he slowly
made his way to the aisle. Then he used
his hands to feel his way. Gratefully, Nick
eased into the first set of seats reserved
for the disabled. A thin rivulet° of sweat
trickled down Nick’s forehead, and his
hands shook.
Okay. Relax. Nick tried to calm 5
himself down. You’ll be all right. You’ll
make it.
Nick, barely 22, had been blind 6
for just over a year. During a tour of
duty in Afghanistan, the vehicle Nick
had been riding in had run over an
IED°. Nick remembered a bright flash, a

Two Recent Reading-Writing Books from Townsend Press

The Reading-Writing Connection
Have you, as a reading and/or writing instructor, asked yourself
these questions:
• Is there a book that will help me teach both essential reading
and essential writing skills?
• Is there a book that will clearly explain the connection between
effective reading and effective writing?
• Is there a book that will provide selections that students will
want to read and topics that students will want to write about?
If you’ve asked any of the above questions, The Reading-Writing
Connection may be the book for you.

The Advanced Reading-Writing Connection
Featuring more advanced readings and practice materials
than The Reading-Writing Connection, this new book also
includes a model research paper and a guide to writing a
research paper using sources. Each reading in the book is
followed by four writing topics—two paragraph assignments
and two essay assignments. Half of the assignments involve
personal experience topics and an “I” point of view; the
other half are “objective” topics that call for a third-person
point of view. All the assignments emphasize the basic
principle of clear communication: that a student make a clear
point and effectively support that point.

Often imitated but never equaled, Ten Steps to Advancing College Reading Skills
remains one of the best-selling reading textbooks on the developmental college
market.

Features of the Sixth Edition

Langan’s books—a tone that never condescends to students. This revised book is no exception.
In addition, the human content of the paragraphs and longer selections will definitely appeal to
you and your students.

ADVANCING

COLLEGE READING SKILLS

Research Proves TP’s Ten Steps Reading Series Tops Competitors!
Students using TP’s Ten Steps Series achieved greater reading score gains than those using other leading
developmental reading textbooks. This research, conducted in a nationwide study of nearly 800 developmental
college reading students from August to December 2013, showed that students using the Ten Steps Series in class
posted greater improvements on a nationally recognized reading measurement than those using other leading
developmental texts. The full study, administered by an independent educational research firm, is available in the
document center on our website (www.townsendpress.com) and confirms what educators tell us all the time:

If you teach in a U.S. college and have never adopted a Townsend Press reading
textbook in any of your classes, we’ll send you enough free copies of any book in
the TP Reading Series for you to try with students in one class. We truly believe
the book you choose will “sell itself,” and you’ll want to consider it for adoption
in future semesters.

2 For instructors already using our
Ten Steps books

Note: E-mail your request for a free classroom
trial to janet.goldstein@townsendpress.com

If you are an instructor in the U.S. who is currently using any of our reading books, you can receive, at no charge, one of the
paperbacks shown on pages 18–22 for every reading book you order from us. (Note that this offer applies only to orders that
your bookstore or department sends directly to Townsend Press.)
Note: E-mail your request for free paperbacks to joe.webb@townsendpress.com
EXAMPLE 1
For instance, if you order 100 copies of Ten Steps to Building College Reading Skills for your students, contact us at
cs@townsendpress.com. We’ll then send you 100 Townsend Library books of your choice. Perhaps you’ll want 100
copies of Reading Changed My Life!—inspiring stories of three women who took hard, courageous steps to change their
lives for the better. We’ll send the free books directly to you at your college address.

(Please note that we cannot send these free books to your bookstore. It would be unfair for the bookstore to have to
handle distribution of books without compensation.)
EXAMPLE 2
If your college orders a combination of all four TEN STEPS books for the coming semester totaling 1,000 copies, contact
us at cs@townsendpress.com. We’ll then send you 1,000 Townsend Library books at no charge. Maybe you’ll want 10
to 20 copies of each book on pages 18–22. Whatever combination you request, we’ll send them at no charge within the
continental United States. Perhaps you’ll want the books sent to your reading coordinator or department chairperson.

(Please note again that the books will need to be mailed to and distributed by you or your department since your
college bookstore, which takes a percentage of each book sold, can make no profit from free books.)

TP Now Offers Three Ways to Teach Vocabulary!
At Townsend Press, we know educators need choices when selecting classroom materials. That’s why we
offer three options for teaching vocabulary. Simply pick the approach that fits your class.

Building Vocabulary Skills, Fourth Edition, provides an answer
to a problem that many students have: they simply don’t know
enough words. This book will help you truly master 300 important words and word parts. You will see and use these words in
a number of different—and interesting—contexts. By working
actively with the materials in this book, you are sure to expand
your word base.

Why study vocabulary?
● Vocabulary is a basic part of reading comprehension. If you don’t know
enough words, you will have trouble understanding what you read.
● Vocabulary is a major part of almost every standardized test. The more
words you know, the better you are likely to do on such important tests.
● Studies show that students with strong vocabularies do better in school.
And one study even found that the most common factor among people with
rewarding careers was a good vocabulary.
● A good vocabulary is vital in today’s world. An increasing number of jobs
involve providing services or processing information. More than ever, words
are the tools of our trade. The more words you know, the more success you
are likely to achieve.

actively with the materials in this book, you are sure to expand
your word base.

Why study vocabulary?

● Vocabulary is a basic part of reading comprehension. If you don’t know
enough words, you will have trouble understanding what you read.

● Studies show that students with strong vocabularies do better in school.
And one study even found that the most common factor among people with
rewarding careers was a good vocabulary.
● A good vocabulary is vital in today’s world. An increasing number of jobs
involve providing services or processing information. More than ever, words
are the tools of our trade. The more words you know, the more success you
are likely to achieve.

Price: $16.90 (a savings of $5 from the cost
of the items sold individually). See page 10 for
bundle ISBNs.

Sherrie L. Nist

● Vocabulary is a major part of almost every standardized test. The more
words you know, the better you are likely to do on such important tests.

I have . . . long been disappointed with ‘abridged’ books. But I compared books in the
Townsend Library to the original source text, and in each case I have been amazed at the
sensitive and precise treatment of Townsend’s editors. They have preserved the tension and
magic of the original stories. Nothing is lost except those things which would be obstacles
to today’s students.


—Daphne Bell, College of DuPage, Illinois
