Open Forum is a three-level series for the development of essential listening and speaking skills. Each level contains listening selections and discussion activities related to the same twelve content areas, including communications, technology, business, the social sciences, and fine arts. As students progress from one level to the next, they gain further exposure to the content areas.
The diverse listening selections ensure a high level of engagement. In addition to the listening and discussion practice, Open Forum offers vocabulary and pronunciation strands that develop naturally out of the content.
