Overview

Consider the Issues helps high-intermediate and advanced students develop critical thinking skills as they gain insight into American attitudes and values. Each thought-provoking unit is based on an authentic radio broadcast from NPR ® . Students develop essential listening strategies, such as predicting, looking at language, understanding main ideas and points of view, focusing on details, and making inferences. Language and concepts are integrated through follow-up critical thinking activities including discussion, debate, values clarification, survey, role play, case study, interview, and simulation.

The fourth edition features six new units on topical issues such as social network privacy, reasons people choose not to marry, and bad driver behavior. In addition, each unit features integrated focus on language and pronunciation activities, as well as new discourse analysis activities.
