    The Elementary Reader contains 30 lessons and is considered the textbook for the course.  Each lesson includes a dialogue or short essay with vocabulary lists and lengthy grammar notes, and a one-page cultural notes section. Stories are illustrated with full-color drawings. This course emphasizes basic grammar structure and principles while using conversations that represent real-life situations. Vocabulary is introduced below the dialogue in easy-to-read charts with simplified (at left) and traditional (at right) characters. Since either simplified or traditional characters are used and taught in different parts of the Chinese-speaking world, this combination is an added bonus. Please note that simplified characters, pinyin and an English translation are used to teach the main lesson. However, for those wishing to learn only traditional characters, the dialogue is written fully in traditional characters on a separate page.

      The listening components for the text, vocabulary lists and workbook are free and are available through smart phone with a QR reader or computer as a downloadable audio file.

    This is a ready-to-use spelling program for anybody who struggles with spelling difficulties from fourth grade through adult. Learning to spell through memorization just doesn't work for some people, and that is where this program comes in. Since approximately 85% of the English language follows consistent patterns and rules, this program focuses on its structural regularity. There are six basic concepts taught: sounds, syllables, word building, rules, generalizations, and compensatory strategies (for words not spelled in a regular way). There are two sections. The first addresses issues and concerns about how students feel about spelling, tests for checking student's knowledge in certain areas of spelling (like consonants, vowels, blends, digraphs, and sound/symbol correspondences), guidelines for assessing the student's needs, ways to teach irregular words, how and when to teach homonyms, teaching dictionary skills, and checking spelling with computers. The second section contains the 40 lessons. Each lesson consists of these same parts: getting started, introducing new information, practicing with individual words, practicing spelling in context, reinforcing activities, and extra interesting facts. Everything needed to present the lesson is given in the book. The philosophy and methodology of each part of the lessons are described in the introduction. Knowing this will help the teacher effectively present the lessons and activities to the student, helping them gain the confidence they need to succeed and excel. The activities are varied and interesting, and all 200 consumable activity sheets in the book are reproducible. This is a complete program for individual students or small group instruction, starting with the basics and working up. Each lesson takes several days to complete, though that pace can be determined according to the needs of the student. Answers included. 415 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
