Salient features of Mirror English Reader Series :
- Each unit starts with an overview that introduces the activities to be performed and the subject matter to be studied. The page gives information about the authors and the reading text of that unit, and is useful for the mapping process and setting out goals for teaching and learning.
- Each unit in the series includes the ‘Let’s Predict’ that activates students’ prior knowledge and helps students to be imaginative and creative in their thought process.
- Most of the chapters have the graphic organizer sections that provide teachers and students with a visual guide for creating meaning.
- Each book has an ample of comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and writing activities that are really a good stuff for teachers and students.
- And a lot of work-in-pairs and work-alone exercises on communicative language skills.
The Mirror English Series is distinguished by its focus on understanding the meaning of the reading text. I am attracted to several features, such as the “Let’s Predict” section, which encourages readers to think about what’s coming next, the graphic organizers that provide students with a visual guide for creating meaning, and most of all the project work that makes the whole reading experience more practical and interesting. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with D N on this project.
