Wild West


The Dominoes series of readers offers more support than traditional readers to both teachers and students. The series caters to a wide range of tastes, with traditional and modern titles, both fact and fiction. It uses the same grading scheme as the Oxford Bookworms, from Starter to Stage 2. There are colour illustrations throughout, and a larger than usual format, help to make the stories more accessible. At the end of every chapter or section, two pages of integrated activities help students to understand what they have read. Five pages of project work at the end of each reader give further ideas on how students can get the most out of the text. The series should be suitable both for students working individually and for teachers wishing to support reading with class activities. Cassettes are available as reinforcement and to enhance enjoyment.
