This paper is a compilation of ESL readings for intermediate and advanced level students, relating specifically to American culture. The readings have been chosen from a variety of sources, including books, magazines and newspapers. Along with each reading there are suggestions for additional activities in the areas of speaking, listening and writing. The writer of this project believes that language study is not complete without the development of cultural awareness. Readings which give the students insight in cultural values and traits are a useful tool in the ESL classroom.
