The new Advanced Reading Power 4 offers a strategic, student-based approach to the teaching of reading that encourages users to view reading in English as a problem-solving activity rather than a translation exercise.

  • More self-directed vocabulary-building tasks embedded in exercises.
  • Updated vocabulary-learning strategies based on current research.
  • New content organized around current issues relating to the Western lifestyle (social, economic, public health, environmental), with an emphasis on academic text types.
  • Enhanced focus on critical thinking and academic skills.
  • Targeted vocabulary items selected from frequency word list based on the Pearson International Corpus of Academic English (including both general and academic English).
  • Appendix with word list for student and teacher reference.

Reading Power’s unique methodology teaches students to view reading as a process. The series encourages students to develop a strategic approach to reading and to view reading in English as a problem-solving activity rather than a translation exercise.

  • Extensive Reading helps students build reading fluency, increase comprehension, and broaden vocabulary.
  • Vocabulary Building includes numerous strategies for learning vocabulary, including using context clues, analyzing word parts, and noticing collocations.
  • Comprehension Skills teaches scanning, making predictions and inferences, recognizing patterns of organization, identifying genre, skimming, and critical reading.
  • Reading Fluency features high-interest, nonfiction selections that help students improve their reading rate and flexibility.
