Text Book: Cambridge Unlock - Carolyn Westbrook

Text Book Description

'Unlock' is an academic skills course book that combines thought-provoking video from Discovery Education with carefully scaffolded exercises and a fresh approach to critical thinking skills.

The documentary-style videos from Discovery Education provide a powerful introduction to a range of academic subjects by activating students’ awareness of the topic and adding interest and authenticity to the lesson. Based on a principled approach to critical thinking skills, 'Unlock' provides learners with a set of building blocks, which enables them to effectively develop these skills. The unique research from the Cambridge English Corpus also means that Unlock can guarantee that the language presented to learners is both up-to-date and relevant.
