Summary

Lots of books explore topics such as Music, Cultures, and Work, but have you read about... the pianist whose concerts are like fireworks--the fishermen of Myanmar who use dolphins to catch fish--the girl who became vice president of a toy company at aged 13--STORIES WORTH READING uses up-to-date, multicultural readings taken from news, feature articles, and authentic literature as a basis for engaging low-level readers. This communicative and academically-focused series systematically develops vocabulary and reading strategies through eclectic activities and exercises in all skill areas.

  • Vocabulary skills development highlights dictionary skills, identifying parts of speech, synonyms and antonyms, and more.
  • Small group discussion activities encourage students to use their new vocabulary.
  • Writing models support students as they produce their own writing samples.
  • Research activities teach library and Internet search skills to help students find information on their own.
