The Jigsaw Books
These photocopiable group stories and exercises transform the classroom into a hub of communicative, cooperative activity. Stories focus on vocabulary building along common themes and stimulate discussion either through controversial questions in the areas of relationships and ethics or through cross-cultural comparisons.
The Non-Jigsaw Books
The non-jigsaw books on this site, Callan's ABCs, Callan's Canadian Holidays for Low Beginner ESL and Callan's Conversation Surveys for Beginner ESL target absolute beginner students whose English level is too low to comfortably handle jigsaws. These books feature abundant, clear illustrations and basic information, carefully avoiding complex or obscure vocabulary and pronunciations.
