Better Learning is our simple approach where deeper insights help shape richer content that drives stronger results.
Topics, vocabulary, academic and critical thinking activities to build students’ confidence and prepare them for college courses were shaped by conversations with teachers at over 500 institutions.
Carefully selected vocabulary students need to be successful in college are based on the General Service List, the Academic Word List, and the Cambridge English Corpus.
Critical thinking exercises are based on Benjamin Bloom's classification of learning objectives.
Students experience the topics and expand their vocabulary through captivating readings and a video that pulls together everything they have learned in the unit, while developing academic reading and critical thinking skills.
Online Workbook has one extra reading and additional practice for each unit. Automated feedback gives autonomy to studens while allowing teachers to spend less time grading and more time teaching.
Teachers can deliver effective and engaging lessons by showing the Student's Book pages and playing the audio and video at the point of use with just one click.
Engaging videos at the end of each unit help students synthesize and expand on ideas, language, and skills they have learned.
Students develop both critical thinking and academic reading skills they can apply to read, understand, and analyze university texts with confidence, helping them achieve academic success.
Readings from a variety of academic disciplines in different formats (essays, articles, website, etc.) expose and prepare students to comprehend real-life text they may face in or outside the classroom
Gradebook in the Online Workbook allows teachers to track how students are doing, while quizzes help assess student's progress after every unit.
