Step Up 2: Listening, Speaking, and Critical Thinking by Margaret Teske, Peggy Marcy

Step Up! 1uses Blooms taxonomy of stepped learning objectives to guide high-beginning to low-intermediate students through the logical processing of oral information. From applying new vocabulary and concepts to analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating knowledge, the text focuses on the critical thinking, listening, and speaking skills necessary to succeed in college. In each chapter, the sequence of activities encourages students to step up to progressively higher orders of thinking and more difficult tasks. Students start by learning new expressions and vocabulary. They then demonstrate comprehension and internalize their knowledge through oral activities that prompt them to apply information and strategies to a variety of contexts. Following application, students step up their expression through real-world assignments, collaborative activities, and unit assessments that further develop language fluency and confidence. Pre-listening activitiesintroduce students to new expressions and vocabulary that will be used throughout the listening and speaking exercises. Jigsaw-Lecture, Discussion,andDebate Activitiespresent listening and speaking strategies that students apply to a variety of contextsfrom interviews and presentations to surveys and conversations. These tasks challenge students to select and distinguish among a number of choices. Practical topics throughout the chapters highlight communication trouble spots and social dilemmas, while motivating students and promoting cultural awareness. The strategies learned in the text correlate to SCANS skills that prepare students for workplace and academic environments. Stepping It Upassignments give students experience synthesizing a number of vocabulary, listening, and speaking strategies inside and outside of the classroomthrough surveys, research, and other proactive activities. Unit projectsfocused on real-world assignments such as news summaries and oral reportspresent opportunities for students to listen to others and express personal viewpoints. Available online, unit assessments enable students to test their mastery of chapter goals and give them an opportunity to develop creative solutions to communication challenges.
