Improve your reading and writing

A Personalized Learning Experience

Everyone learns differently. Some may learn best from a written lesson, while others may absorb more from a video or by reading instructions. MyLab Reading & Writing Skills is designed to accommodate a wide range of learning styles by providing multimedia instruction and a unique adaptive study plan for every student.

Help on demand

Integrated Learning Aids

Within each activity, feedback specific to your responses is given to help you understand why your answer is correct or incorrect.

Ask My Instructor enables students to email their instructor for help—right at the point at which they are struggling. Students can email a query, accompanied by a copy of the question or concept with which they are struggling.

In addition, Animations provide interactive, visual (and audio) summaries of the topic's key concepts. A Glossary that defines key or technical terms is also on hand.

Works with you to help improve your reading and writing

Adaptive Study Plan

As you progress through the course, MyLab Reading & Writing Skills evaluates your results on each assessment and recommends new topics for study.

  • If you are working in the learning path, the program adapts its recommendations based on your most recent performance.
  • If you are working on a reading or writing assignment, MyLab Reading & Writing Skills adapts its recommendations to help you build toward that next assignment.
