Overview

About The Product

To help students expand their fluency, World Pass focuses on dynamic vocabulary building, essential grammar, and stimulating listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities that emphasize the language they need for real world communication.

Features

  • "Language Focus" sections highlight essential grammar points and provide opportunities for fluency practice through a wide variety of communicative activities.
  • For added conversation fluency practice, each "Listening" section ends with an "Ask & Answer"discussion task.
  • Each "Speaking" section presents a specific speaking skill or strategy and an open-ended communicative task to help expand fluency.
  • The "Reading" and "Writing" sections provide instruction and practice with the types of tasks and skills that upper-level students need.
  • "Expansion Pages" are designed as an optional self-study section, offering students an opportunity to go beyond what is presented in the unit and allowing teachers greater flexibility.
  • Each unit ends with a consolidating "Communication" section that practices the language covered in the unit. Frequent Review Units also help learners solidify the language they have learned.
  • Extensive teacher support in the Teacher's Edition includes "Lesson Planning Guides" for each unit, photocopiable CNN video worksheets, and a variety of helpful teaching hints and suggestions.
  • "Professional Development Pages," a reflective teaching course by Andy Curtis, uses lectures, questions, and reflective activities to guide teachers through their professional development as they teach with World Pass.
  • An Assessment CD-ROM with ExamView Pro allows instructors to create and customize tests and quizzes quickly and easily.
  • A Teacher's Resource Book with reproducible student activities and a Teacher Web site offer an abundance of ready-to-implement resources.
  • Two Workbook formats! In addition to printed versions, the Workbooks are available online, offering auto-graded exercises and a learning management system that allows both teachers and learners to track progress.
