Engaging activities throughout the text help students practice both academic listening and academic speaking.Academic content excerpted from Houghton Mifflin college and McDougal Littell high school textbooks familiarizes students with academic subjects across the curriculum and teaches them the listening and speaking skills necessary to succeed in those disciplines. An overall theme, People and Human Behavior, unites the content.The Houghton Mifflin English for Academic Success competencies, which are based on competencies developed by ESL instructors and administrators in Florida, California, and Connecticut, provide an underlying structure for EAP courses by ensuring a clear articulation of objectives throughout the series.All materials classroom were tested and approved by a board of adjunct instructors to ensure easy-to-use for both full- and part-time instructors.Master Student Tips are excerpted fromthe market-leading first-year-orientation book, Becoming a Master Student.
