Imagine writing love letters to someone every day for a year only to see that person marry the mail carrier! Or scuba diving near the Florida coast and getting sucked into the huge pump of a nuclear power plant! Teachers have described these reading selections as “amazing and heartwarming” and “ideal springboards for my own lessons.” These human-interest stories, all adapted from newspapers and magazines, engage students with humor, poignancy, or astonishment. Each story is accompanied by an illustration or an authentic photo of the event; exercises in vocabulary, reading comprehension, discussion, and writing; and pair and group work. Believe it or not . . . you’ll get hooked on these truly true stories.
