Amazing Analogies Book 2 : Adults Learning English
"These books provide stimulating and engaging discussion topics as well as exposing students to the essential concept of analogies." Rain Donohue, ABE/ESL Coordinator for Truckee Meadows Community College, Reno, Nevada. Book 2 on nature is an entertaining educational tool designed to engage adults learning English. The four key words of each nature analogy are in CAPITAL letters. Each word in capital letters has a related photo to clarify meaning. The analogies are set up to foster predictive skills, which are essential to reading success. The student makes a prediction of the answer based on the first three words of the analogy. A hint is given for additional help. After making the prediction, the student turns the page to learn the answer to the analogy question. This immediate feedback turns learning English into a rewarding game. Analogies are important because they influence how we read, think and write about the world.
