Making Connections is a new textbook (w/ teacher’s guide) from Facing the Future.

This new research-based teacher’s guide helps students develop English language skills through highly engaging real-world investigations of current global issues.

Aligned with education standards, this 352-page guide includes nine chapters with lessons that have been reviewed and field tested by content experts, teachers, and students. Throughout the teacher’s guide, ideas for differentiated instruction make this text applicable for student levels ranging from beginner to advanced.

The table of contents, chapter 1, and chapter 3 are available to download if you’re interested in checking it out.
