This is a comprehensive textbook centered on the skills needed to efficiently decipher English texts. It consists of two parts. Part 1 focuses learners’ attention on strategies they can use to comprehend English texts, such as skimming, scanning, predicting, using background knowledge, understanding chunks, understanding paragraph structure, and summarizing. In Part 2, students will learn how to use paragraph structure to better understand the content while also learning ways to expand support sentences and typical connecting words for each type of paragraph structure. Teacher’s materials contain a mini-test for each unit.
