Название: Hot Topics 3.
Автор: Cheryl Pavlik.
Hot Topics 3 is different from other reading and discussion texts because it dares to deal with demanding subjects such as crime and religion. These topics have not been chosen to shock students, but merely to give them a chance to talk about matters that people discuss every day in their first languages. That said, not every topic will be appropriate for every classroom. Some themes such as the disabled will probably be acceptable in any classroom. Others such as mental illness or prostitution might prove problematic in some teaching situations. To assist, each chapter in the Brief Contents is rated by the amount of controversy it is likely to cause. Of course, teachers should read the articles in each chapter carefully and decide if their students would feel comfortable having a discussion on a particular topic. Another way to determine which chapters to use in class might be to have students look through the book and then vote
on specific topics they are interested in reading and discussing. And finally, even though the chapters at the beginning of each book are generally easier than the chapters at the end, the text has been designed so that chapters can be omitted entirely or covered in a different order.
Each level of Hot Topics consists of 14 chapters. The readings in Hot Topics are crafted to present students with challenging reading material including some vocabulary that one might not expect to find in a pre-college text. The reason for this is twofold. First, it is almost impossible to deal with these "hot" topics in a meaningful way without more sophisticated vocabulary. Second, and more importantly, it is ineffective to teach reading strategies using materials that provide no challenge. In the same way that one would not use a hammer to push in a thumbtack, readers do not need reading strategies when the meaning of a text is evident. Reading strategies are best learned when one has to employ them to aid comprehension.
