Thresholds in ReadingBook - 1998
Unsimplified readings that contain common academic vocabulary present controversial topics to the student. Each unit contains several chapters which expose a variety of viewpoints on topics such as famous Canadians, the Native experience, Alternative Education, Wolf Children, Lies and Truth, Female Beauty and Bigfoot. Some readings are on cassette. Each chapter gives pre and post reading activities that include word identification, comprehension and scanning exercises, true-false questions, identifying the main idea or note-taking, vocabulary-in-context and key-word exercises. Chapter 1 allows students to do diagnostic tasks, take a reading inventory and set personalized goals.
