Summary: SKILL LEVEL: High-Intermediate to Advanced

Like its predecessor Open Sesame, Eureka! teaches reading skills, vocabulary building, cross-cultural awareness, and critical thinking. This student- and teacher-friendly text aids ESL students in gaining both language and cultural literacy by reading the classic fables of Aesop, the myths of ancient Greece and Rome, the romantic tales of old England, and in learning American proverbs.

American English i mores filled with vocabulary, idioms, allusions, and cultural values from the ancient Western world. With Eureka! ESL students will improve their English and gain a better under-standing of the stories and ideals of the ancient Greeks and Romans and of the English of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, which have influ-enced modern American English and our culture.

Eureka! will teach new vocabulary and idioms, improve reading skills, and introduce the ESL students to the most famous proverbs and values of the mainstream American culture of the 21st century. The stories also challenge students' think-ing and clearly illustrate word derivations through a rich variety of reading skill exercises and activities. less
