  5. EDITOR’S POINT OF VIEW NWTESL New Ways in Teaching English at the Secondary Level: • Does not focus on a single language skill. • Compiles a series of integrated activities. • Combines all the skills and features of language learning. • Includes activities involving: authentic literature, academic content, multimedia use, peer cooperation, career information, etc. Claudia Acero

  6. EDITOR’S POINT OF VIEW NWTESL • Includes activities with several objectives. • Has activities to practice note-taking, reading, writing, speaking, listening, summarizing and illustrating. Above all: • Helps learners to prepare for their academic tasks, not only for the language ones. Claudia Acero
