Description - Beyond True Stories by Sandra Heyer

Would you believe ... ? A woman invests in stocks and makes $22 million -- then donates almost all of it to a university! A Japanese guard helps a prisoner of war survive World War II because of the shared love of an opera aria. The daughter of a grieving widow takes her mother on a vacation cruise -- and both women unexpectedly find romance on board. Beyond True Stories, by Sandra Heyer, continues and expands the True Stories tradition with eight thematic units, each based on a real-life, human-interest story. Each unit opens with A True Story in the News, followed by readings and activities that explore the theme in the story. Beyond True Stories is a book students won't want to put down. Features Reading strategies and vocabulary-building activities (including activities that target the Academic Word List) prepare students for academic work. A variety of texts -- including first-person accounts, expository pieces, graphs, charts, and maps -- provide practice with different kinds of reading. Thought-provoking discussion and writing prompts encourage personal expression and complete the reading process. The book is also available with recordings of the stories on CD.
