BeschreibungThis three-level academic, theme-based reading series focuses on cross-cultural content and promotes critical thinking skills. Features Reading selections span fiction, non-fiction, news and magazine articles, interviews, maps, charts, web pages, quotations, and photo captions. Reading passages reflect controlled word count and vocabulary and structure progression. Skills are continually recycled to build student reading fluency, confidence, and mastery. Units open with engaging photographs and questions to introduce the theme, provide academic focus, set chapter goals, and activate prior knowledge. "Before You Read" activities stimulate background knowledge, focus on vocabulary presentation and practice, and introduce important expressions. "As You Read" sections focus students on the main idea, offer timed readings to build fluency, and provide pair work activities to promote topic discussion and information processing. A specific section in each unit focuses on Internet reseach. Structured speaking activities help students further explore each unit theme. Each unit concludes with three writing activities. This is the intermediate level student book.
