Fa Keih Reading Series. Book 1.
This is the first of a reading series designed primarily for students who are interested in continuing to learn Chinese in a Chinese bilingual program at the secondary level. It follows "The Golden Mountain Reading Series" developed for students in the elementary grades. Each lesson contains the following elements: vocabulary, explanations, idioms, questions for discussion, and exercises on structure and usage of words and phrases. Also included are exercises to distinguish synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, and classifiers. The reading selections are taken from Chinese literature, both classical and contemproary. The topics covered in the reading selections include the introduction and appreciation of writing styles, practical wirtings, translations, student's writings, newspaper articles, and essays written by Chinese Americans. The series was developed around the interests and experiences of the students for whom it was intended. In addition to objectives directly connected with language skills, cultural and affective objectives of the series are stated. (Author/AMH)
