Read Better! For Adults and Teens
One of the earliest tasks that a child faces, and arguably the most important one, is to learn how to read. For many, this skill is easily acquired, but for others, the letters on the page remain a mystery. A third group of readers learn to read at some level but never learn to read well, with ease, and with enjoyment. It is for that third group, now grown into adults and teens, that this book is written.
Read Better! For Adults and Teens provides easy-to-follow lessons, which teach the fundamentals of English and ways to improve your comprehension skills. This simple method not only teaches you how the English language is “encoded,” but also provides 80 incremental standardized practice stories with grade level scoring for charting progress. With chapters like “Phonemes, Phonics, and Phonograms,” “6 Types of Syllables,” and “Comprehension Strategies,” you will receive vital information you need to improve your reading. Note: More limited readers should work with a parent, friend, or tutor who can correct pronunciation and check understanding of each lesson. This book is also recommended for use in middle schools, high schools, colleges, universities, homeschooling, work settings, GED programs, ESL English learning programs, and prisons.
