Elizabeth Claire

Order Form Located Below Description

The New Boy Is Lost! (formerly titled Where Is Taro?) is more than a dramatic story with a picture for every sentence. It's a "novel approach" to systematic language acquisition.

For your beginning students, The New Boy Is Lost! is a 15-week ESL program. Even pre-literate students will easily follow the story through the 300 full-color pictures. While students are focusing on "what happens next?" they will be learning greetings, introductions, street safety, and 500 basic words for family members, colors, numbers, time, weather, transportation, clothing, school subjects, emotions, descriptive adjectives, and high frequency action verbs.

For your intermediate students, The New Boy Is Lost! is a reader that stimulates cathartic conversations about their own personal experiences when they entered the United States.

Advanced students can study the elements of a novel in The New Boy Is Lost! character, conflict, theme, plot, setting, foreshadowing, values, suspense, complications, scene shifting, climax, and resolution.

The cassette is a dramatic reading of the novel by the author with sound effects and music. It can be used alone for listening comprehension development or in combination with the student book.

The teacher's guide and activities kit includes chapter-by-chapter tips for the development of themes, language-extension exercises, and question banks at three levels. You'll feel Elizabeth Claire's master touch supporting you in your classroom. Forty-five reproducible blackline masters help you use the novel with pre-literate and beginning students, allow you to evaluate students' listening and comprehension skills, and begin guided writing. The teacher's guide includes multilevels of activities for the multilevel classroom, with activities for cooperative learning, creative writing projects, literature discussions, research, and much more.
