Description

Views and Voices feature compelling, bold, and heart-rending stories that are a vibrant testament to the richness of global literature written by authors whose first language is English, but whose first culture is not. Drawn from various continents, each story in its original English form intellectually and emotionally explores life while simultaneously expanding learners’ knowledge of the English language. The units open with pertinent pre-reading questions, unique library/Internet activities, and a short introduction to the author and theme. This is followed by the text of the reading, with difficult vocabulary defined in the margins. Further activities explore each story through Internet sites, journal writing, a focus on different styles and usage of English, discussion questions, and follow-up projects.

The fourteen “Views and Voices” are divided into three sections:

PART ONE: Family, centers on how individuals observe and define their parents and extended family;

PART TWO: Adulthood, addresses pivotal moments in growing up, from culture shock and homesickness to marriage and the search for identity;

PART THREE: Culture Clash, recognizes the thorny problems which can characterize the meeting of cultures.
