Description:

This multicultural reader uses engaging selections to introduce students to the wide variety of cultures in the United States. Organized by themes such as Education, Growing Up, and Families, the collection provides thought-provoking material for class discussion as well as compelling ideas for writing. Straightforward pedagogy includes exercises that help students to analyze both the content and style of each reading, as well as writing prompts that serve as essay assignments or in-class writing activities. Reading selections in Crossing Cultures vary in length and difficulty to provide suitable material for both less experienced and more sophisticated student readers and writers. Each unit opens with a short, often personal piece and then proceeds with progressively more difficult selections. Concluding each unit, a poem provides an alternate way to explore the unit theme.
