The appeal of our Inclusive Readers is all about encouraging learners to fall in love with reading and learning through reading. Here are some reasons why teachers find our Inclusive Readers attractive:
Unlike authentic reading materials, which can often be too challenging for lower level students, our Inclusive Readers carefully introduce learners to new vocabulary in context. This allows students to infer the meaning of new words without having to reach for a dictionary.
Our Inclusive Readers also help students revise and practice level appropriate lexis, reinforcing what they already know. By exposing students to the right level of challenge, our Inclusive Readers help students expand and bolster their vocabulary and learn to express themselves more clearly.
Our Inclusive Readers are made for everyone. They are not only written for their educational value, but they also keep the entertainment value of the original piece.
What’s more, there’s no need to force students to read books they would never choose for themselves; whether they enjoy comedies, thrillers, horror stories or classic novels, they’ll be able to find a book and a genre to suits their tastes. You can be sure they will keep students hooked, page after page.
Improving language skills.
The best way to hone any skill is through consistent practice. Our Inclusive Readers are short and focused, which means learners don’t lose interest and are able to complete the book, giving them a real sense of achievement. The books also come with additional exercises and vocabulary lists.
Encouraging students to read in their own time also helps them learn independently – an essential skill for anyone learning a language.
Supporting exam preparation.
Reading is an excellent, low-pressure way to supplement students’ exam preparation. Students tend to enjoy reading more than doing grammar exercises, so they are far more likely to do it in their free time, and complete the exercises you set for them.
Our Inclusive Readers are also an excellent resource for students, as it helps them review key language in a natural context.
Bringing the outside world in.
Our non-fiction Inclusive Readers also appeal to students because they are full of interesting facts and insights about the world around them. Our Inclusive Readers can be used as great starting points for topic based projects and to capture students’ interest about themes you want to touch on in class.
They can also be used as source material for presentations and other collaborative activities.
