Item Details

Book & CD-ROM. Do you know a struggling reader who has given up trying? Try reading again! This book can help turn older beginning readers into first-time readers or significantly improve their reading abilities. The reading method presented here is appropriate for people with intellectual disabilities, as well as for students whose native language is not English (ESL students). This book features three important components: Language experience stories; Phonics; Age-appropriate structured stories. Put these together and you'll discover it's never too late to learn to read! Veteran special educator, tutor, and parent DeAnna Horstmeier presents a savvy approach tailored to the interests and vocabulary of upper-elementary, middle, high school, or adult beginning readers so as not to frustrate or embarrass them with materials written for very young kids. In keeping with current research showing that students are most successful and motivated when they read about their own experiences, the book includes instructions for creating and using original stories about a reader's own life as well as age-appropriate stories written by the author for different reading comprehension levels. With the help of worksheets, games, flashcards, and exercises, students learn phonics -- the sounds of consonants, short and long vowel sounds, blends, digraphs, and basic prefixes and suffixes. Objectives and evaluations for each phonemic topic relate to curriculum-based measurements, making this a useful guide for middle and high school teachers, as well as parents and reading tutors. A handy CD-ROM of worksheets, activities, and additional stories makes it a cinch to print multiple copies to share with many students and to repeat exercises. This proven reading method presents an invaluable opportunity to try reading again, enriching the lives of older beginning readers and giving them greater independence.
