    the readings of the Reading and Writing section

    In order to enable sufficient practice of grammar items, the Practice section has been beefed up with more communicative exercises, including conversational tasks. Furthermore, outdated material in the readings of the Reading and Writing section has been replaced with content more relevant to modern Japan.

    Re: the readings of the Reading and Writing section

    A reading is an article/passage/excerpt, or entire book which has been set by a teacher for students to read.
    You might see descriptions like "Compulsory reading for this subject: " etc. It just means stuff to be read. Your teacher might say, "The reading for tonight is http://genki.japantimes.co.jp/about_en/point_en.
