Overview

World of Reading 3: A Thematic Approach to Reading Comprehension / Edition 2

With its thematic approach to building reading comprehension, the new World of Reading series engages students in a wide variety of genres such as news articles, short stories, and textbook excerpts. Each unit is made up of four chapters with readings from many different disciplines, including science, social science, business, and literature. Based on the successful Building on Basics and Building Understanding books, the series has been expanded to cover low-intermediate to advanced students.

Features of World of Reading 3

  • Authentic readings help students learn language for use inside and outside the classroom.
  • Previewing activities stimulate background knowledge and introduce essential vocabulary to prepare students for readings.
  • Vocabulary checks, side-by-side with the readings, call out essential vocabulary in context and help accelerate fluent reading.
  • Comprehension and vocabulary sections develop students’ ability to read authentic materials independently.
  • Writing prompts offer opportunities for expression about the themes.
