Reading for Academic Purposes

Reading for Academic Purposes

The 4 Point series is designed for English language learners whose primary goal is to succeed in an academic setting. Academic English learners need skills-based books that focus on reading, listening, and speaking, as well as the two primary language bases of vocabulary and grammar. The ultimate goal is to help your students improve these skills and earn a 4.0 (GPA). The Introduction to English for Academic Purposes (EAP) level is designed for students in academic programs who need a more general introduction to authentic academic content. The discrete skills volumes are designed for programs and courses that want to more intensively focus on key strategies and authentic academic content in one skill area. Each 4 Point volume covers academic skills while providing reinforcement and systematic recycling of key vocabulary issues and further exposure to grammar issues. These volumes focus very heavily on vocabulary because language learners know that they are way behind their native-speaker counterparts when it comes to vocabulary. Each book highlights key vocabulary items, including individual words, compound words, phrasal verbs, short phrases, idioms, metaphors, collocations, and longer set lexical phrases. Reading for Academic Purposes is an introductory textbook containing English for Academic Purposes content. Each unit includes two authentic reading passages on the same topic within a field of academic study: Marketing, Architecture, Linguistics, Fine Arts, Legal Studies, and Literature. Most readings come from texts that are used as college/university textbooks. Each reading is accompanied by a before-reading and after-reading strategy, plus either a during-reading or vocabulary strategy, followed by a practice activity. The goal is to provide students with a variety of strategies/tools to master whatever academic texts they may encounter.
