Root, Jane H.; Schall, JoAnn
The sequential program in the "Read On" series uses a diagnostic/prescriptive approach to teaching adults and teenagers who have little or no competence in basic reading skills. This introductory packet consists of a text and workbook that deal with adult themes ranging from grocery shopping to fishing and motorcycling and a teacher's guide containing two placement tests, a detailed explanation of the program, and supplemental tutoring suggestions. The text contains instructions for the tutor on left-hand pages and exercises for the student on right-hand pages. A matching workbook provides further experience with words. Word cards in the back of the book make possible a two-minute mastery check of progress. (MAI)
