    Allerlei zum Lesen for high school

    As a high school teacher with honors German and advanced placement, I am always looking for interesting reading materials. This book fits the bill! The readings are by well-known authors (Boell, Kaestner,etc) as well as lesser-known ones, including a Swiss writer. The pre- and post-reading materials are excellent, and students continue to build a growing vocabulary. There is plenty here to have authentic discussion about as well as being a spring-board for student-based activities. In short, I find it the most useful reader in my intermediate/advanced grouping!
