Introducing the USA: A Cultural Reader

Do you know when the hot dog first came to the United States? Do you know what U.S. government building has its own fire department? As entertaining as they are informative, these stimulating cultural readers introduce students to typically American people, places, and things. The intriguing facts presented in the units not only give students information about the USA but also inspire cross-cultural exchange. Vocabulary and structures used in the texts have been carefully controlled at each level, while the language has been kept natural and lively. Each book features: — Pre-reading questions linked to introductory visuals to prepare students for the content of the reading. — Topic-related vocabulary exercises to encourage students to work out meaning through context. — Comprehension exercises to help students develop good reading skills. — Discussion questions to give students an opportunity to bring their own knowledge, culture, and imagination to unit topics. Twenty-eight units cover a wide variety of topics — from popcorn and buffaloes to Native Americans; from Beverly Hills and the Sequoias to peanut butter — that entertain students while they learn. Realistic photographs and amusing illustrations provide a context for the readings.
