Preface “ 初階英文閱讀與寫作練習” is a comprehensive split edition coursebook for students in their f irst year of vocational high school to develop their reading and writing skills. The book includes a broad collection of topics related to social issues, cultural differences, environmental protection, and technological innovation. In “ 初階英文閱讀與寫作練習,” students can use and improve their English skills through readings and exercises that will help them make progress on a daily basis.
Each unit has two main readings with different types of texts. For each reading, students are guided through a set of steps: before you read, while you read, and after you read. These help students understand the act of reading in a logical, helpful way.
After the two readings in each unit, there is a writing section that teaches grammar points and writing skills. At the end of each unit, students take what they have learned and use it to practice creating sentences that correspond to photographs. Once they have completed this, they will share their sentences, evaluate those of others’, and revise their own sentences. As a f inal task, students are asked to assess how well they did and how much they learned.
In this innovative way, “ 初階英文閱讀與寫作練習” will help students explore the world around them and sharpen their English skills.
