Between the Lines - 4e secondaire

This second edition of the Between the Lines series helps students acquire knowledge in order to develop ESL competencies.
This text-based activity book proposes a variety of text types and topics.
The response process for each text is divided into four phases.

BEFORE Reading
This section encourages students to explore the texts and interact orally with the class about open-ended questions.

WHILE Reading
This section directs students to use reading strategies, which are designed to help them understand the texts.

AFTER Reading
This section reinvests understanding of texts and looks into their literal and underlying meaning before providing comprehension activities.

A STEP Forward
This section reinvests understanding of texts and delves into their underlying meaning. Further questions establish personal connections and then generalize beyond the texts. They are separated into two parts. Part A is intended to be written and Part B to be done orally. This section also provides enrichment questions.
