STUDENT BOOK - READING DEVELOPMENT
A major innovation in the series is the inclusion of four Reading for Pleasure sections in each level. These can be used in one of three ways:
The early Reading for Pleasure sections utilise cartoon. By Grapevine Three the stories are getting long - some have as many words as the average short graded reader.

By Grapevine Three there is necessarily more attention to reading and listening skills.
There are also TESTS which are photocopiable and are incorporated in the Teacher's Book.
Learner skills appear throughout where relevant, with many references in specific Teacher's notes.However, each Workbook starts with a Study Guide section of four pages.
See Grapevine 2 Teacher's Book Vocabulary Index
The vocabulary index has two features:
In levels two and three only, there are phonetic transcripts.
All vocabulary is divided into three areas: Active, Passive and Classroom (or instructional). A word may have several references. For example:
look- C1, 2
This means it is used as instructional language in unit 1, and taught actively (to be learnt) in unit 2.
Grapevine was the first book we did where we could track every vocabulary item throughout the series on computer, so ensuring that a word could be previewed as passive vocabulary, then later taught actively, repeated in Workbook units, Checkbacks and tests and recycled again in the stories. It was an enormous job, but one which should show in the classroom results.
