- We can order this
Did you know that...
an ex-girlfriend--not a stranger on a subway--inspired the song "You're Beautiful"?
the tradition of singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at baseball games is relatively new?
the song "I Have a Dream," which made Susan Boyle a celebrity overnight, describes her own life?
More True Stories Behind the Songs, by Sandra Heyer, continues the True Stories tradition -- with a twist. The text features lyrics for eight popular songs along with real, believe-it-or-not stories about the songs and their songwriters. Companion stories related to the topic of the song round out the units. To see a sample unit, please go to pearsoneltusa.com/sampleunits.
Teachers are encouraged to download the songs from their favorite website or to use a version they already own. Or you can purchase recommended recordings on iTunes. A link on the True Stories website (www.pearsoneltusa.com/truestories) will take you directly to the playlist. For a limited time, your Pearson representative will provide a free, legally copied CD of all the songs with a minimum order of 20 copies of More True Stories Behind the Songs. Please go to www.pearsoneltusa.com/specialists to find your nearest representative.
FeaturesExercises for vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and writing and speaking practice to help students develop language proficiency. A comprehensive To the Teacher section gives background information about the songs and stories as well as teaching tips. An access code at the front of the book enables teachers and students to download recordings of the stories free of charge at www.pearsoneltusa.com/truestories. Coming in 2013: A free website will provide lists of additional classroom-friendly songs that fit the unit themes, accompanied by reproducible worksheets and teaching tips.
