"Quest" is a three level reading and writing series that prepares ESOL students for the rigors of college academic coursework. This series differs from other content-based "ESOL" series in that it incorporates material typically covered in college-level general education courses and contains a variety of academic areas including biology, business, U.S. History, psychology, art, cultural anthropology, American literature and economics. "Quest" parallels and accelerates the process that native English speakers go through when they study core subjects in high school. By previewing typical college course material, this book helps students get "up to speed" in terms of both academic content and language skills. The Reading and Writing books combine high-interest material from newspapers and magazines with traditional academic source materials such as textbooks. The series is comprised of three levels: Book 1: High-Beginning - Low- Intermediate, Book 2: Intermediate - High Intermediate, and Book 3: Low-Advanced - Advanced. There is a companion "Quest: Listening and Speaking" series for same three levels.About the Author:
