Schemas : Strategies pour la Lecture
As a core text or supplement to beginner or intermediate French courses, this innovative reader delivers authentic selections and is ideal for the instructor or department that desires more than the tailored selections common to traditional texts. Readings are arranged into chapters by topics with which students are familiar and are introduced by a question, statement, or an explanation that provides insight into the subject matter. Task-based problem-solving exercises reinforce the learning strategy of each chapter and request that students transform textual material into charts, diagrams, and other comprehension-intensive formats.
