GLOBAL VISIONS – INNHOLDET

Global Visions er et nyskrevet engelskverk for faget internasjonal engelsk i den videregående skolen. De seks kapitlene dekker et stort spenn av temaer * og teksttyper. I tillegg byr læreboka på litterære interludium med bidrag fra Francis Duggan (Parody ‘No Racial Prejudice Intended’) og Moshin Hamid (The Reluctant Fundamentalist), skrivekurs som gjør det enklere for elevene å skrive gode tekster, og en referansedel bakerst i boka som tar for seg grammatikk, ord og uttrykk og setningsstrukturer.

* NB! Forbehold om endringer.

“As we become so visible in the digital world and leave an endless trail of data behind us, exactly who has our data and what they do with it becomes increasingly important. Snowden’s revelations shocked the world and made it very clear why we need to have some way to look over those who look over us. With increasing terrorist attacks, security is critical, but not without any accountability or oversight.”
