These recordings, combined with vocabulary and word pattern exercises, prepare the Level 1 student to read each paragraph-long text with greater independence. Depending on a learner’s readiness, you may wish to use the sentences in the Word Pattern sections as dictation. Exercises on the connections between consonant sounds and letters are beyond the scope of these books. I recommend using these books 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.

Short Description:
Becoming a Confident Reader focuses on the essential skills and practices needed upon entering the first semester of college composition, either with or without a co-requisite support course. Students will learn to build and maintain resilience as a student, apply an effective reading process to college texts, and summarize and respond to academic writing. Thematic readings are included for practice. Extension activities provide opportunities for making connections, conducting basic research, analyzing the techniques authors use in their writing, and evaluating the use of sources in a text.
