Reading is often described as being either intensive or extensive. Intensive reading is reading practice done with a shorter text. Much attention is usually paid to practicing the mechanics of reading (explicitly practicing particular reading styles such as skimmingscanningreading for detail...) and to actual structures of text (grammatical features, discoursal features, features connected with genre). An intensive reading text is likely also used to introduce new vocabulary items. Asian Issues series is an example of a text that takes an intensive reading approach. In extensive reading, on the other hand, the emphasis is on reading large amounts of text and on developing reader confidence, reading fluency and reading speed. Extensive reading is often connected with the idea of graded reading, of using simplified texts. Our Global Issues Narratives series, (Identity, Mine and Trafficked) are examples of extensive reading. These two practices are of course not mutually exclusive. Students can—and many would argue should—be doing both intensive and extensive reading.
