While reading and writing have been topics of instruction for centuries, what and how students read and write have changed dramatically. Students of the 21st century must respond to messages from television, radio, movies and the Internet as well as traditional print resources. That's why Elements of Language was created. Reading age for native speakers: Middle School students (7th grade)
NB: If a couple of pages (Content, Index, etc) are missing, it's because the publishing company has not included them in the pdf version of the textbook.
