Each book in this series:
contains six short bios of topical high achievers
hooks even reluctant readers with high-interest text
offers a range of activities designed to develop reading, writing and research skills
includes activity answers and an activity checklist.
Stories of achievement against the odds demonstrate the power of commitment and self-belief, and can inspire the same in others.
The Believe You Can Achieve series builds on this principle by structuring a variety of language skills around short biographies of famous high achievers.
The 24 subjects, ranging from Nelson Mandela to Cate Blanchett to Justine Henin, have been selected from diverse fields on the basis of their likely appeal and familiarity among young readers.
The activities that accompany each biography are designed to encourage and extend a range of language skills related to vocabulary, sentence structure, cloze exercises, word-finds or word scrambles and comprehension. ? These resources offer valuable support for ESL students as well as for students in regular classes.
