9780132468053: More True Stories Behind the Songs: A High-Beginning Reader

Did you know that...

 

  • an ex-girlfriend--not a stranger on a subway--inspired the song “You’re Beautiful”?

 

  • the tradition of singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at baseball games is relatively new?

 

  • the song “I Have a Dream,” which made Susan Boyle a celebrity overnight, describes her own life?

 

More True Stories Behind the Songs, by Sandra Heyer, continues the True Stories tradition -- with a twist. The text features lyrics for eight popular songs along with real, believe-it-or-not stories about the songs and their songwriters. Companion stories related to the topic of the song round out the units. To see a sample unit, please go to pearsoneltusa.com/sampleunits.

 

Teachers are encouraged to download the songs from their favorite website or to use a version they already own. Or you can purchase recommended recordings on iTunes. A link on the True Stories website (www.pearsoneltusa.com/truestories) will take you directly to the playlist. For a limited time, your Pearson representative will provide a free, legally copied CD of all the songs with a minimum order of 20 copies of More True Stories Behind the Songs. Please go to www.pearsoneltusa.com/specialists to find your nearest representative.

 

Features

  •  Exercises for vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and writing and speaking practice to help students develop language proficiency.
  • A comprehensive To the Teacher section gives background information about the songs and stories as well as teaching tips.
  • An access code at the front of the book enables teachers and students to download recordings of the stories free of charge at www.pearsoneltusa.com/truestories.
  • Coming in 2013: A free website will provide lists of additional classroom-friendly songs that fit the unit themes, accompanied by reproducible worksheets and teaching tips.
