Description

x

The 9th edition of Zoology continues to offer students an introductory general zoology text that is manageable in size and adaptable to a variety of course formats. It is a principles-oriented text written for the non-majors or the combined course, presented at the freshman and sophomore level.

New to the 9th edition are Learning Outcomes and Learning Outcome Review questions. Learning Outcomes help students identify and focus on the major concepts of each chapter. Learning Outcomes Review questions conclude each major concept to reinforce critical concepts students have just studied and include critical thinking questions that assess their understanding of those concepts.

Introducing Connect Zoology! For the first time in this discipline Connect and Connect Plus allow instructors to provide auto-gradable and interactive assessment material tied to learning outcomes and provide students better integration through live ebook links to animations, videos and audio assets.

New Features

  • Revised lesson-opening pages that include chapter objectives.
  • A fresh, new interior design, including the colorization of many art pieces.
  • A new lesson-culminating activity that reviews vocabulary and grammar, often within the context of a task related to the ongoing storyline in the video.
  • New writing tasks in all review lessons.
  • A new text-specific, interactive CD-ROM provides students with an engaging way to review and practice material from the Destinos video series.
  • A new text-specific website offers students ample story, vocabulary, and grammar practice as well as a host of other resources that will help them explore the Spanish-speaking world in greater depth.
  • A new 7 hour Listening Comprehension Program, now packed free with every new copy of the Student Edition, provides additional opportunities for students to develop listening comprehension skills. Tied to sections in the textbook, the audio selections include reading passages, vocabulary, and listening-based activities.

Key Features

  • In 1992 Destinos captured the hearts and minds of Spanish students and instructors alike. Using the popular telenovela (soap opera) premise, Destinos has introduced thousands of students to the richness of the Spanish-speaking world while at the same time giving them a strong foundation in vocabulary, grammar, and other skills necessary to communicate effectively in Spanish.
  • · Three kinds of Spanish are spoken in the video, all of which provide students with the opportunity to hear natural language as well as language used in more controlled settings: (1) Spanish spoken in a narrated voiceover (controlled), (2) Spanish spoken by Raquel, the protagonist, as she reviews each episode (controlled), and (3) Spanish spoken by the characters as their dialogue propels the story forward (natural).
  • Vocabulary and grammar presentation and practice are important components of Destinos. But rather than driving the program, the materials are driven by the storyline. Thus, students study vocabulary and grammar within the larger context of the content of the video series.
  • Review lessons (6, 11, 18, 25, 26, 36, 48-51) review the Destinos story to provide students with a solid knowledge of the action, characters, and important events that take place within the video series.
  • Culture is abundant throughout the video and text-based materials in Destinos. Students don’t only read about culture in the text—they see and hear it throughout the video program!
  • A wealth of still photos taken from the video series and printed in the text materials relate characters to actions and further reinforce the storyline.
  • Both volumes of the Workbook/Study Guide contain additional vocabulary practice and grammar presentation and practice. In addition, each review lesson contains a Grammar Summary and practice of the grammar presented in previous lessons.
