Book Description

This course pack is designed to meet the learning outcomes for Adult Literacy Fundamental English Level 2 (roughly equivalent to grades 1.5 to 3 in the K-12 system). Every of the eight chapters includes a level-appropriate, high-interest reading of approximately 200 words.

The readings are freely available in a separate reader with convenient links to the readings in each chapter of this course pack. The online version of this course pack also contains audio recordings of each story in the reader. These recordings, combined with vocabulary and word pattern exercises, prepare the Level 2 student to read each chapter with greater independence. Depending on a learner’s readiness, you may wish to use the sentences in the Word Pattern sections as dictation. It is recommended that these books are used alongside a structured phonics program, such as the Wilson Reading System.

Each course pack chapter includes pre-reading questions that can be used for individual reflection or class discussion, vocabulary-building and word pattern exercises, comprehension questions, grammar lessons and practice exercises, and a writing task. Font size and line spacing can be adjusted in the online view, and have been enhanced for the print and PDF versions for easier reading. This course pack has been reviewed by subject experts from colleges and universities.
