The Read and Reflect series helps students develop academic reading skills through an exploration of United States culture. Students develop their reading ability, acquire useful vocabulary, and discuss their own ideas in guided and controlled contexts. The new introductory level presents and practices fundamental academic reading skills developed further in Levels 1 and 2.
Thought-provoking readings are based on a variety of authentic sources and cover a range of topics across the curriculum from the social sciences, to history, technology, and business. Stimulating exercises and group activities promote reading proficiency, critical thinking, and vocabulary acquisition.
Level 2 also features strategies for increasing reading speed, enabling students to read more efficiently, and for development of research skills.
