Samantha: The Sequel

Front Cover
University of Michigan Press, 2000 - Foreign Language Study - 262 pages
The long-awaited return of Samantha is finally here! The sequel opens with Samantha just about to give birth to her baby. Fans of Samantha know that Samantha discovered she was pregnant just before her husband Bradley left her for another woman. Adult students, whether or not they have already been acquainted with Samantha in the original textbook, will enjoy learning about the challenges Samantha must overcome as a single mom in the sequel.
As in the first Samantha textbook, Samantha: The Sequel builds students' vocabulary and offers substantial practice in reading. Because the content deals with real-life social and ethical issues, students are quickly drawn into the text, and, as a result, become more enthusiastic about learning vocabulary and participating in classroom discussions.
Well-organized and easy to use, each chapter of Samantha: The Sequel contains an exciting episode of Samantha's life, vocabulary and idiom lists, and plentiful exercises designed to reinforce vocabulary, aid reading comprehension, and, of course, stimulate lively classroom discussion. A glossary of vocabulary and idioms is included in the back. In keeping with the style of soap operas, the book's twelve short chapters have been sealed to help build suspense and keep students from reading ahead.
