What is Fiction in Action: Spellbound?
Fiction in Action: Spellbound is the second book in the Fiction in Action series, textbooks designed to act as bridges to extensive reading. Over 12 units encompassing two original six-chapter stories, the books introduce students to the hows and the pleasures of reading accessible fiction in English
Spellbound focuses on extended and connected passages in one genre – the fantasy story – familiarizing students with the language, style and literary conventions associated with this form of story. A special feature of the text is tasks that are not merely supportive of but intrinsic to the stories. Having successfully gone through these stories, students can go on to read any other appropriately leveled readers on their own.
Spellbound is at about 70% of the vocabulary level of Whodunitand is for high-beginner through intermediate level students. Follow the adventures of Corwin, an apprentice wizard and son of Ulwin, wizard of the realm. Bad times are coming and Corwin’s response could determine the fate of the world.
As well as the text, the book includes additional listening activities in downloadable audio files as well as a wizard’s spellbook which is also downloadable. Here students can note down important details and record any new words or expressions.
