Publisher Comments:

The entertaining reading series for beginning-level ESL students that uses short, believe-it-or-not, real-life stories to stimulate vocabulary acquisition and build reading comprehension.

Read On is a new reading series designed for beginning and high-beginning level ESL students. Each book in the series features 20 short, stimulating reading passages on high-interest topics such as a hotel that’s 21 feet below the ocean, a woman who lived in a tree, how twin brothers fell in love with twin sisters, and blind people who use seeing-eye horses.

Each reading contains vital, high-frequency vocabulary that is recycled throughout the chapters in each book. This gives students a chance to see new vocabulary a number of times and in a variety of contexts. Teachers and students will also enjoy the self-standing format of the series. They can either select chapters according to need and interest or systematically work through each book.

FEATURES:

  • Chapter-opening photographs introduce students to the themes of the readings.
  • Before You Read activities ask students to make inferences, activate their prior knowledge, and answer questions based on their experience.
  • Audio recordings of each reading selection provide students with listening practice to increase their comprehension skills.
  • Key vocabulary items appear in bold-faced type for easy reference.
  • Main idea questions presented in standardized testing formats help students check their reading comprehension as well as prepare them for success in taking standardized tests.
  • Learn New Words and Complete the Paragraph activities test students’ understanding of new vocabulary words.
  • Think It Over activities encourage students to use critical thinking skills to examine ideas introduced in the reading selections.
  • Write It Down activities prompt students to write sentences and paragraphs about their thoughts, opinions, and ideas.
  • Talk It Over activities ask students to discuss ideas related to the chapter topics
  • An Activity Menu section at the end of each pair of chapters, gives students the opportunity to practice and recycle new vocabulary and do expansion work through:

    --Tie It Together activities-- students use graphic organizers to synthesize information from the previous two chapters.

    --Just for Fun activities – students practice spelling and word other.

    --Go Online activities--students Internet search skills.
