Summary

Discovering Fiction is a two-level reading series that introduces students to authentic American literature. Student's Book 2 is an anthology of eighteen short stories by contemporary and classic American authors, including Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, and Shirley Jackson. The stories have universal appeal that will touch students and make them think. Designed for high-intermediate to advanced students, the text provides interactive, integrated skills lessons developed around each story. Pre-reading sections include prior knowledge questions, author biographies, discussions of literary terms, and reviews of idioms and expressions found in the stories. Accompanying grammar exercises help students overcome such trouble areas as prepositions, articles, and irregular verbs. Also included are vocabulary sections, reading comprehension questions, and thought-provoking discussion and writing topics. Review sections tie the stories together and provide review tests.
