Just Read! is a reading education system that supports and teaches students wherever they are in their reading journey. It offers fluency practice from letter recognition and phonological awareness all the way to reading comprehension, allowing educators to briefly assess a student and begin work exactly where they are.
Based on a Multi-sensory Structured Language Education (MSLE) approach to literacy acquisition, the system provides structured and sequential instruction in reading, and each aspect is based on current research and practice.
After introductory material and a screening assessment tool, the Teacher’s Manual is in three parts. ‘Decoding Plus!’ contains a range of drills and passages at five levels so teaching can be tailored to students, while ‘Fluency Plus!’ and ‘Comprehension Plus!’ each offer fifteen stories designed to build concepts and skills in a cumulative way.
The Teacher's Manual is the instructor's resource, with reproducible tracking sheets and other forms. Each learner should be provided with a copy of the accompanying Student Workbook, which contains contains parent-friendly blank versions of the exercises for a student to complete.
