Where In The World
by Anne Siebert and Raymond C. Clark
Travel around the world with your class, joining the adventures
of Igor as he visits 30 great places all around our planet Earth.
Where in the World is a low-level integrated skills text. As
the "Where" implies, the linguistic content emphasizes
the WH questions. The first unit uses just under 100 words in
short, simple sentences. The opening conversation uses 30 different
words, and the central reading passage has a total of 50 words.
By the time the learners arrive at their final destination, Washington,
DC, they have used over 300 new words, and the final reading passage
is 174 words long.
