Remix: Intense Competition is an expository nonfiction text with extensive photographic support. Three chapters explore becoming a champion, pushing personal boundaries, and intense rivalries. Many specific events are used to illustrate ideas about competition making or breaking athletes, such as Ben Johnson testing positive for steroids after winning an Olympic gold medal in 1988 and the 2011 Vancouver riot after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup. Questions such as “Do you think fighting should be banned from hockey?” 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.
