Step Forward Canada 1 uses real-life situations and everyday events to teach mature or adult ESL learners the building blocks of the English language. It is a four-skill book whose comprehensive, easy-to-navigate Table of Contents gives instructors a clear picture of the lessons and identifies where important language requirements will be taught throughout the text. The Table of Contents lays out the book's 12 units and identifies how the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLBs) coincidewith and enhance the material being taught in the classroom. The CLBs are the cornerstone for identifying the language levels of adult English learners in Canada. More specifically, they allow instructors a simple, streamlined means of evaluating the English proficiency of their students based on regulated benchmarks (that act as reference points). The CLB levels covered in Step Forward Canada Book 1 range from one to four (the most basic language levels); in total, however, there are twelve CLB levels, with higher levels being taught in more advanced texts. The body of the text includes 12 units. Each unit has five lessons and a review section. The five lessons are: vocabulary, life stories, grammar, everyday conversation, and real-life reading. Each of the five lessons covers various CLBs using everyday situations, and each lesson is identified with CLB level for instructors' convenience.

"Of the three elements of music -- rhythm, melody, and harmony -- rhythm has received the least attention from the theorists, yet it is indisputably the basic element without which there is no musical art." Such is the first sentence of this book on use of the body to express musical rhythm. Elsa Findlay is eminently qualified to write on this subject, having been a student of Emile-Jaques Dalcroze, the master himself, also from her own experience in a variety of teaching situations. These included schools of dance and theater, colleges and universities, and The Cleveland Institute of Music, one of the first to offer a BMus degree with a major in eurhythmics. Each chapter concentrates on a different phase of rhythm: tempo, dynamics, duration, metrical patterns, speech and rhythm patterns, phrase and form, pitch and melody, and creative expression. Activities for each phase are outlined in detail and illustrated by charming drawings and photos. Appendices furnish further suggestions for exercises, games, action songs, and suitable music.
