Join author John Hughes and Development Editor Brenden Layte to discuss what’s new in the third edition of World English. The webinar will begin with an author’s perspective on the program, followed by an editor’s exploration of the key features of the new edition that make it come to life in the classroom like visible learning Goal Checks, ‘My World’ personalization activities, specially created video content from TED speakers, and the new extended Writing and Communication lessons. We’ll also share the experiences of real World English teachers, saving time for a question and answer session at the end.
