The best-selling NorthStar series (Series Editors: Frances Boyd and Carol Numrich),  now in its Second Edition, offers two strands: a reading and writing strand and a listening and speaking strand. Both strands stimulate students' imagination, encourage critical thinking, and promote personal expression.
