Hot Topics 1-2-3 Cheryl Pavlik

»здательство: Thomson; Heinle, 2006, 1-190с., 2-190с., 3-216c. (with audio CD); Instructor's Manual - 152с.

HOT TOPICS is guaranteed to engage readers, stimulate thinking, and provoke conversation while developing vocabulary and reading skills. The controversial topics explored in the text all have more than one side to them, thus encouraging debate and classroom discussion.

Х Three readings per chapter explore the same hot topic from different points of view. The readings in each chapter vary by genre and increase in difficulty to support reading development.

Х A focus on reading skills and reading comprehension through pre-reading questions, skimming and scanning activities, the use of context clues, vocabulary analysis, and the development of critical thinking skills helps students increase their reading fluency.

Х Open-ended questions at the end of every chapter encourage students to voice their opinions and defend their viewpoints either through discussion or in writing.

Hot topics 3 differs from the preceding two levels in that the majority of readings are authentic or only slightly adapted from sources such as the New York Times. CNN, and the BBC.

The Instructor's Manual supports Hot Topics 1-3 through teaching notes with additional classroom and Internet activities, answer keys, video scripts and video clip summaries, theme and chapter summaries, cultural and historical background information, and audio tracking for each reading.
