WOW! Stories from Real Life

Wow! Stories from Real Life: A Low-Beginning, Multi-Skills Text contains picture-based stories written for adult learners at a low-beginning level. Each story has many types of exercises–more than most reading texts do–that cover a variety of reading/writing skills. Students can work individually or in groups, and at their own pace.  The “progressive cloze” exercise enables students to gradually build writing skills. The section for teachers (no separate manual to buy) gives detailed steps for using the book. The authors are Natalie Hess and Laurel Pollard (of Zero Prep fame) and the publisher is Alta Book Center.
