Summary

 

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.
