It is a four-skill book whose comprehensive, easy-to-navigate Table of Contents gives instructors a clear picture of the lessons and identifieswhere important language requirements will be taught throughout the text.The Table of Contents lays out the book's 12 units and identifies how the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs) coincide with and enhance the material being taught in the classroom. The CLBs are the cornerstone for identifying the language levels of adult English learners in Canada. Morespecifically, they allow instructors a simple, streamlined means of evaluating the English proficiency of their students based on regulated benchmarks (that act as reference points). The CLB levels covered in Step Forward Canada Book 1 range from one to four (the most basic language levels); intotal, however, there are twelve CLB levels, with higher levels being taught in more advanced texts.The body of the text includes 12 units. Each unit has five lessons and a review section. The five lessons are: vocabulary, life stories, grammar, everyday conversation, and real-life reading. Each of the five lessons covers various CLBs using everyday situations, and each lesson is identified withCLB level for instructors' convenience.
