The GO! Welcome Newcomers® library introduces life in the United States to immigrant tweens. As these students learn English and adapt to living in a new country, they must also learn to fit in academically and socially. Developed around 14 key topics, this program gives recent immigrants relevant information at an accessible reading level supported by full-color photographs. Featuring diverse characters in contemporary settings, the books resonate with newcomers in upper elementary and middle school.
Each topic is covered by a pair of books, one nonfiction and one fiction. GO! Welcome Newcomers® places special emphasis on building vocabulary because research indicates the importance of vocabulary acquisition for students learning English. Survival words related to each topic are highlighted in the books, with definitions provided in text boxes on the page for easy reference. These same words are featured on the full-color vocabulary cards and in the Teacher’s Guide included in the box.
