Literature for English contains high-interest stories by famous writers, covering a variety of genres, such as folktales, science fiction, and autobiography.
The language level is controlled so that students with limited English skills can easily understand the stories.
Selections in the Beginning- and Intermediate-level books are divided into a number of short, illustrated sections. Many of the chapters in the Advanced-level books contain theme-related stories and poems.
Students are introduced to literary elements such as plot, character, setting, conflict, and theme. Students will also learn to use critical thinking skills -- making predictions, drawing conclusions, and making inferences. Although skill development throughout the five books is progressive, teachers can alter the sequence for intermediate- and advanced-level readers.
Student Book Organization
Each Literature for English student book follows a similar format. A pre-reading section, Getting Ready to Read, introduces each story. This section is divided into three parts: The Story and You, Learning About Literature, and Looking Ahead. It provides high-interest material to motivate the student to read the story and also offers important information about elements of literature.
Each story is followed by a comprehensive four-part skills check. These activities contain hands-on practice in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. It includes the following exercises:
