The Glencoe Reader Course 7 (British Literature) Workbook


CAVEAT: The quality of the scan is suboptimal, ie, the pdfs look slightly blurry and unclean in places, but the complete content is readable.

The Glencoe Reader is a special kind of book - one you can actually interact with and make your own. Go ahead. Circle, underline, or highlight parts of a selection that grab your attention or that are hard to understand. Jot down words you want to remember. Fill the margins with your own thoughts and questions. You can mark up this reader in a way that works for you - a way that helps you understand and remember what you read.

This reader-cum-workbook has been put together for US high school students, but should also prove useful in an ESL/EFL environment, where the focus is on reading, understanding, and working with different types of British-English texts.
