Aid in Reading has been designed to help many different types
of reader: those beginning to read, those struggling with
reading and those learning English for the first time. The
Pretest establishes the student's starting level and the Program
Book provides systematic lessons working through all major
English phoneme groups and sight vocabulary words. The course
teaches the 2500 most common words in English, including the
Dolch list and the 400 most frequently used words in standard
reading programs. The Activities Book provides revision sheets,
stories and games to accompany the reading course.
Both books are highly illustrated, easy to work through and
suitable for teachers or parents. First Aid in Reading is
the ideal DIY basic reading program.
Students recognise that individuals and groups have both common
and different attributes and that each individual may be a
member of many different groups. Students recognise, appreciate
and value individual differences and perspectives.
