WORLD PASS focuses on dynamic vocabulary building, essential grammar, and stimulating listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities that emphasize the language students need for real world communication.
? A "Vocabulary Builder" activity helps learners expand vocabulary through the use of particular vocabulary-building tools, such as learning to use word families, root words, or compound nouns.
? "Language Focus" sections highlight essential grammar points and provide opportunities for fluency practice through a wide variety of communicative activities.
? For added conversation fluency practice, each "Listening" section ends with an "Ask & Answer" discussion task.
? Each "Speaking" section presents a specific speaking skill or strategy and an open-ended communicative task to help expand fluency.
? The "Reading" and "Writing" sections provide instruction and practice with the types of tasks and skills that upper-level students need.
? "Expansion Pages" are designed as an optional self-study section, offering students an opportunity to go beyond what is presented in the unit and allowing teachers greater flexibility.
? Each unit ends with a consolidating "Communication" section that practices the language covered in the unit. Frequent Review Units also help learners solidify the language they have learned.
? Extensive teacher support in the Teacher's Edition includes "Lesson Planning Guides" for each unit, photocopiable CNN video worksheets, and a variety of helpful teaching hints and suggestions.
? "Professional Development Pages," a reflective teaching course by Andy Curtis, uses lectures, questions, and reflective activities to guide teachers through their professional development as they teach with World Pass.
? An Assessment CD-ROM with ExamView Pro allows instructors to create and customize tests and quizzes quickly and easily.
? A Teacher's Resource Book with reproducible student activities and a Teacher Web site offer an abundance of ready-to-implement resources.
