"To help students expand their fluency, World Pass focuses on
dynamic vocabulary building, essential grammar, and stimulating
listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities that emphasize
the language they 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. "
