Freshman Composition. Encountering Cultures is a composition reader that integrates issues of language and culture, domestic cultural diversity, and global cultural diversity with an unprecedented range of readings, authors, and views.

The new thematic arrangement of readings and the enhanced editorial apparatus facilitate for students and instructors a comprehensive view of cultural issues and a critical thinking approach.

Do you know when the hot dog first came to the United States? Do you know what U.S. government building has its own fire department? As entertaining as they are informative, these stimulating cultural readers introduce students to typically American people, places, and things. The intriguing facts presented in the units not only give students information about the USA but also inspire cross-cultural exchange. Vocabulary and structures used in the texts have been carefully controlled at each level, while the language has been kept natural and lively. Each book features: -- Pre-reading questions linked to introductory visuals to prepare students for the content of the reading. -- Topic-related vocabulary exercises to encourage students to work out meaning through context. -- Comprehension exercises to help students develop good reading skills. -- Discussion questions to give students an opportunity to bring their own knowledge, culture, and imagination to unit topics. Thematic units, such as U.S. Geography, U.S. Inventors, and U.S. Originals, open with a pictorial spread to help ease beginning students into the readings that follow. High-interest feature stories, written almost exclusively in the present tense and each less than a half-page long, motivate and promote confidence.
