"Real World Reading Binders 1&2"
by Adult ESL Tutor
Tuesday, June 24, 2008
What better way to learn reading strategies than to read real world texts. My struggling reading secondary students love reading every day types of writings because it is relevant. They never realized that reading helped them order food, cook a meal, pay bills, or buy products. My students talk about the many different ways reading these items helps them get through their daily lives. I love this product. It has been a unique way to introduce, reinforce, and review reading strategies while opening the door for a variety of conversations about real world situations. Just seeing the many ways my students use reading in a day to day way makes them excited and motivated to improve their reading skills and realize the importance of reading well.
