NEW Two new levels for younger or lower-level students forthcoming (2012)

For a series of non-fiction readers which provides cross-curricular / CLIL content with activities, project work and stunning full-colour photographs, look no further than Oxford Read and Discover.

The fascinating information and eye-catching images in these exciting new books appeal to a wide range of students.

A comprehensive range of non-fiction topics that can be used for cross-curricular work makes it easy to bring CLIL into your classroom – and motivate your students.

The series covers three broad curriculum areas:

  • The World of Science and Technology
  • The Natural World
  • The World of Arts and Social Studies

The flexible design of the books provides both free and supported reading opportunities. The activity pages at the back allow for uninterrupted reading. Clear signposting makes them easy to find.

Let the students read the text freely – photos, diagrams, and charts will support their understanding – or they can turn to the activity pages for more language skills practice and interaction with the text. The Picture Dictionary or Glossary, depending on the level, is always at hand to offer extra support.

Two projects in every book give students the chance to practise their research and presentation skills.

Audio recordings of all the books, in both American and British English, bring the language to life and help with pronunciation.

The Teacher's Handbook gives lesson planning and CLIL guidance, plus all the activity answers. The content summary is a great selector tool.
