Summary

Strategic Reading 2 is a new intermediate reading skills text for adult and young-adult learners of English as a Second or Foreign Language. Strategic Reading 2 is designed to build the reading skills and vocabulary that students need to achieve academic success. The book contains 16 units on contemporary themes. Each unit contains three multiple-genre readings adapted from authentic sources such as newspapers, magazines, books, and websites. Units open by introducing new vocabulary and asking students thought-provoking questions related to the unit theme. On the page opposite the readings are exercises that develop student interest in the theme, provide practice in a variety of text-appropriate reading skills, and offer opportunities for discussion and/or writing. The final page features vocabulary expansion activies and suggestions for extension activities, which can be completed either inside or outside the classroom.
