Reading Right: A Text for Reading, Volume 1. English for Special Purposes Series: Nursing Aide.
Hubbard, Katherine E.
This is the first of four volumes devoted to reading instruction, in a series of materials for teaching English as a second language to adult nursing aide students. The two units included deal principally with survival skills. The first unit is an introduction to Mahimahi Island, the imaginary quasi-Hawaiian locale used throughout the series. The second unit deals with time concepts and teaches the student how to read a bus schedule. Each unit consists of readings interspersed with Cloze passages, comprehension questions, vocabulary exercises, lists of suggested activities, and brief lessons in grammar and usage. Pictorial aids include action illustrations, maps, and sample schedules. This volume does not deal specifically with nursing skills. (JB)
