Synopsis

Finding Family uses a continuing storyline to provide a rich, high-interest context that helps students use all language skills. The story focuses on the lives of six immigrant students and their teacher, Veronica. The storyline contains authentic situations (feelings about leaving home, separation from family, adjusting to a new culture, making new friends, falling in love, and finding "family') that immigrants in the United States face, allowing students to immediately identify with these situations and prompt them to consider their own lives. These are stories of resilience and twists of fate, of working hard and finding help where you least expect it.The stories, together with the discussion activities, comprehension tasks, and vocabulary exercises, provide rich opportunities for extension and application to the lives of students who use the book. Although the readings and vocabulary are a big part of each chapter, this textbook provides ample speaking and writing practice.
