Its unique structure, featuring four parts to be used concurrently, allows beginning-level students (with a 300-word vocabulary) to develop the multiple sills and strategies involved in the reading process.

  • Vocabulary Building offers strategies for independent vocabulary learning such as dictionary work, guessing meaning from context, and learning how words work in sentences.
  • Comprehension Skills teaches reading skills such as recognizing words and phrases, scanning for information, and making inferences.
  • Thinking Skills provides practice in recognizing sentence structure and following the logic of ideas.
