When something or someone turns up missing, it is unexpected-often even a gripping mystery. Law enforcement professionals are skilled at tracking the missing. Sometimes, however, a disappearance is inexplicable. A spacecraft disappears millions of miles from Earth. A ship or plane vanishes in the Bermuda Triangle. What explains these mysteries? If your students liked the ‘Disasters’ series, they’re going to love the new ‘Astonishing headlines’ series. Designed specifically to appeal to reluctant readers, these 64-page softcover books present self-contained chapters, each a fascinating true-life ‘headline’ story. A topical book review, glossary and index accompany each title. Additionally, a comprehensive teachers guide provides answers, a suggested lesson format and ten reproducible activity pages to support each nonfiction title, focusing on giving lower-level readers the tools to construct, extend and examine the meaning of text. Also available as an e-book on www.pandabooks.jp
