Reading skills and vocabulary for struggling readers
The new edition of Intermediate Reading Practices reflects changes to reading skill and vocabulary development since 1992. More than half of all the readings are new. In addition, activities for discussion and listening have been added. The new edition offers enhanced vocabulary instruction, particularly word parts and families, with an emphasis on words on the Academic Word List. The third edition of this long-time favorite also includes the much-loved timed readings and word recognition drills that improve reading fluency.
Using the popular format of Reader's Choice, Choice Readings introduces intermediate students to the skills and strategies of independent and efficient reading. Choice Readings provides a wide range of authentic reading experiences. Essays and editorials sharpen critical reading skills. Students read and discuss the roles of family members in different cultures, the dynamics of power in international political relations, and many other thought-provoking topics. The needs of today's international language learners are reflected in the science and business features as well as in magazine and newspaper articles on topics of widespread interest, such as the rights of smokers. Maps, charts, and graphs complement many of the prose selections. Fiction, both adult and children's literature, provides opportunities for students to stretch their imaginations. Cartoons provide insight into human nature and cultural differences.
