This is the entertaining reading series for beginning-level ESL students that uses short, believe-it-or-not, real-life stories to stimulate vocabulary acquisition and build reading comprehension. "Read On" is a new reading series designed for beginning and high-beginning level ESL students. Each book in the series features 20 short, stimulating reading passages on high-interest topics such as a hotel that's 21 feet below the ocean, a woman who lived in a tree, how twin brothers fell in love with twin sisters, and blind people who use seeing-eye horses. Each reading contains vital, high-frequency vocabulary that is recycled throughout the chapters in each book.This gives students a chance to see new vocabulary a number of times and in a variety of contexts. Teachers and students will also enjoy the self-standing format of the series. They can either select chapters according to need and interest or systematically work through each book. It features: chapter-opening photographs introduce students to the themes of the readings; 'Before You Read' activities ask students to make inferences, activate their prior knowledge, and answer questions based on their experience; audio recordings of each reading selection provide students with listening practice to increase their comprehension skills; key vocabulary items appear in bold-faced type for easy reference; and main idea questions presented in standardized testing formats help students check their reading comprehension as well as prepare them for success in taking standardized tests.You can learn new words and complete the paragraph activities that test students' understanding of new vocabulary words. 'Think It Over' activities encourage students to use critical thinking skills to examine ideas introduced in the reading selections. 'Write It Down' activities prompt students to write sentences and paragraphs about their thoughts, opinions, and ideas. 'Talk It Over' activities ask students to discuss ideas related to the chapter topics. An Activity Menu section at the end of each pair of chapters, gives students the opportunity to practice and recycle new vocabulary and do expansion work through: Tie It Together activities - students use graphic organizers to synthesize information from the previous two chapters; Just for Fun activities - students practice spelling and word other; and Go Online activities - students Internet search skills.
