The third book in the Raise Up! series is aimed at B2 (intermediate) learners. It has 8 lessons written by a diverse team of writers, editors and illustrators. We had the privilege to work with five guest writers in this edition: Andrew Walkley on sport and fitness, Efi Tzouri on life in a refugee camp, João Eduardo Quadros on the life of a driver and low-paid workers, Taíza Lombardi on elderly people, accomplishments and life experience and Vicky Saumell on beauty ideals and body types. Three of the lessons have been written by Raise Up! co-founders Ilá Coimbra and James M. Taylor. Ilá’s lessons look at black women’s inventions and on African religions whereas James’s is on a legendary drummer who is black and disabled.
Each lesson is beautifully illustrated, and for the first time, there are two listening lessons. The mp3s and transcripts for students are included, as well as extensive teacher’s notes containing answers, teaching suggestions and resources.
All proceeds from this book go to Lifting Hands International, an impact-focused nonprofit organization dedicated to providing clear and meaningful ways for you, your family, and your community to help refugees at home and abroad.
