American Perspectives,by Susan Earle-Carlin and Colleen Hildebrand, helps high-intermediate and advanced students develop skills in reading comprehension and critical thinking. Each theme-based unit offers multiple views of contemporary U.S. culture. Authentic readings from books, newspapers, magazines, and websites stimulate cross-cultural discussion and writing. Features:Introductory readings and preview activities tap students' previous knowledge and assumptions about U.S. culture. Reading skills and vocabulary expansion activities help students understand and express their ideas about the texts. Collaborative activities encourage students to interact with the readings and develop critical thinking skills. Short written responses, essays, research papers, as well as editing practice, help students perfect their writing skills as they reflect on their own values and experiences.
