These readers for beginning to low-intermediate level ESL courses use a communicative approach to build vocabulary and develop students' confidence. Each of the 10 thematic units in each volume contains two true human-interest selections adapted from newspapers or magazines, sequenced in order of increasing difficulty. A careful progression of individual, pair, and group activities - ranging from guided to open-ended practice - motivates students and promotes the active use of language.

  • Let's Get Ready activates students' background knowledge, introduces new vocabulary, and highlights major themes. Before You Read pre-reading activities include vocabulary practice, categorizing activities, and discussion questions.
  • Reading Skills sections following each story check comprehension, build and review vocabulary, present strategies for reading and critical thinking, and promote pair and group work.
  • Put It Together activities synthesize the material presented in each unit, and Try It sections review the events and recycles the vocabulary introduced in the unit stories.
  • Let's Review sections recycle the unit vocabulary through categorizing activities, matching activities, and crossword puzzles.
  • Tell the Stories encourages students to integrate new language by retelling the unit stories in their own words, while In Your Neighborhood and Beyond the Story invite them to relate the unit topics to their own communities.
  • Talk About It discussion questions help students integrate the unit ideas and language, and Solve the Problem presents useful suggestions for group work.
  • Writer's Option suggests ideas for writing assignments related to the unit topic.
