Remix: Out of This World is an expository nonfiction text with extensive photographic support. Three chapters explore space experiences, exploration, and experiments. Many specific events are used to illustrate ideas about space, such as Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield, becoming a new commander of the International Space Station in 2012 and volunteer astronauts on a simulated Mars mission. Questions such as “Do you think it is a good idea to mine asteroids? Why or why not?” spark deeper thinking. A concluding page provides ways for students to reflect on and extend their engagement with the topic.
Clear headings, short chunks of text, easy-to-see captions, and FYI boxes are used on every two-page spread. Red type is used to make key words stand out. A glossary and index are provided.
Sentences are short and simple in structure. Everyday language is used to explain important ideas.
