Each student book in the series contains ten thematic lessons that relate to students' life experiences and interests: Health, Work, Family, Community, School and education, Civics and government, Sports and recreation, Housing and transportation, Food, Consumerism and money. Each lesson includes: Lesson objectives and key vocabulary; Prereading activities and midreading questions that keep students engaged and aid comprehension; Fiction or nonfiction reading passage written specifically for adult learners; "After you read" exercises that reinforce vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing skills; "Write about it" activities that guide students through the writing process using graphic organizers."--P.  of cover.
