Item description for Reading Comprehension: In Varied Subject Matter Book 6 by Jane Ervin, Paul Tomlinson, Jens Brockmeier, J. C. Hawkins, Kate Overy & Christopher Chapman...
Overview Used successfully by classroom teachers, tutors, ESL teachers, and parents, these workbooks have just been revised and updated, with the addition of new reading selections, new vocabulary, and a new writing exercise. Each workbook has thirty-one selections in different subject areas. Within each workbook there are themes that relate the selections to one another, show different aspects of a topic, and give students a broad knowledge of the topic. Selections follow a consistent format: About the Passage introduces the selection to the the reader; Reason for Reading explains the reading skill emphasized; The Selection; Thinking it Over lists two to three broad questions to be answered in writing; Studying the Passage asks questions about the main idea, facts, and sequence, and asks students to draw conclusions, make assumptions, and interpret. Using the Words encourages students to use new vocabulary words in a paragraph, and Writing About It has students answer questions about the contents of the selection and offer their interpretation or opinion.
