This workbook is designed to help students understand and use English grammar correctly and effectively. This is a content-based text, and all the examples, readings, and exercises are based on the topic of hurricanes and floods. Each unit in the text covers one area of grammar. Corpus-based grammars of English have been used to inform this text to ensure that the language taught is natural and high-frequency. This text will help students become better readers and writers and listeners and speakers, by showing them how English grammar can be used correctly and effectively.
The Forces of Nature workbooks combine high-interest readings with skills development activities. Each of the five workbooks features a different skills focus—reading, vocabulary, grammar, study skills, and multi-skill review with writing activities.
Each content-based workbook also focuses on a different force of nature—earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods, blizzards, and wildfires. These events were selected because they allow students to develop an understanding of natural events that threaten property, ways of life, and lives. Because information about preparing for a disaster is sometimes unavailable or not at a level that is understandable to some of today's students, tips for surviving each force of nature are presented at the end of each workbook.
The Forces of Nature workbooks are copublished with Artesian Press.
