This workbook is designed to help students improve their basic comprehension and general reading skills. This is a content-based text, and all the examples, readings, and exercises are based on the topic of earthquakes. Each unit features a pre-reading activity, basic comprehension exercises, and vocabulary practice. Units include practice making inferences, understanding the organization of reading passages, and pronoun references.

The activities recycle the vocabulary and ideas of the reading text and are therefore accessible and meaningful rather than dry, rote exercises.

The Forces of Nature workbooks combine high-interest readings with skills development activities. Each of the five workbooks features a different skills focus reading, vocabulary, grammar, study skills, and multi-skill review with writing activities.

Each content-based workbook also focuses on a different force of nature earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods, blizzards, and wildfires. These events were selected because they allow students to develop an understanding of natural events that threaten property, ways of life, and lives. Because information about preparing for a disaster is sometimes unavailable or not at a level that is understandable to some of today’s students, tips for surviving each force of nature are presented at the end of each workbook.

The Forces of Nature workbooks are copublished with Artesian Press.
