ADVENTURES IN JAPANESE 3 TEXTBOOK 4E HC
Building on the success of Volumes 1 and 2, Adventures in Japanese Volume 3 encourages the development of natural Japanese across all four language skills. With a wider range of communicative activities, AP* preparation strategies, snapshots of historical figures, and authentic reading and listening activities, Adventures in Japanese Volume 3 fosters cultural competency alongside language acquisition for engaging and holistic instruction.
Unit Structure: Each lesson frames targeted activities around the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. A multi-page manga dialogue previews the content of the first lesson section (speaking and listening focused). Authentic reading comprehension activities preview the content for the second half of each lesson (reading and writing focused).
Cultural Competency: AP-style review activities introduce historical Japanese figures to build competency while recycling and consolidating language skills. Japanese Culture Projects after each lesson invite students to engage in more in-depth independent research and present their findings in Japanese.
Communicative Activities: Authentic listening activities expose students to natural, native Japanese to improve both reading and writing skills. Lesson Readings with more advanced comprehension activities improve both reading and writing skills.
Review & Recycling: Post-lesson reviews provide a downloadable Oral Pro-Achievement Interview (OPI) checklist to help students keep track of content learned in each lesson. AP-style Text Chat, Conversation, and Discussion review activities apply lesson material in real-life scenarios.
