All Around America Review

by Theresa Konchan


Get ready for a trip all around the USA that will enthrall your students and have them begging for more - all without leaving the classroom. All Around America, Anne Siebert's latest text and workbook for Intermediate to High-Intermediate learners, features 18 well-known sites in the United States. Students explore each location through readings, quizzes, and scripted dialogues. They can work individually, but working in small groups, they will enjoy acting out the dialogues (readers-theater style). Guided by a fictional talk show host, JD Rivera (who is a time traveller and so can take the students back in time), the talk show features a mix of historically accurate and fictional characters. CD's allow students to hear the dialogues professionally read. The text is crisp, clean, and uncrowded. New vocabulary is highlighted, and related websites are noted for students' further research. Fact sheets provided in the Talk Show Scripts text include even more information for curious students. The blend of challenging vocabulary, an opportunity to perform, and the chance to learn more about the United States will be irresistible to English for Students of Other Languages learners.
