Description of this Book

The Footprint Reading Library is the first non-fiction reading series for English Language learners to present real-world stories in print, audio, and video. It ensures that students not only become good readers, but become better at reading non-fiction and information materials. Through photographs and organisational aids - such as diagrams, graphs, tables, maps and charts - the reader learns how to read non-fiction books. Student activities are integrated into each reader, guiding learners through the text and helping them understand and apply information. A short Assessment Reading at the end of each book recycles key vocabulary and concepts. Each reader can be used on its own, or with the accompanying video and audio programmes.
