Lynn Bonesteel, Series Editor

Paul Nation, Series Consultant

A four-level reading skills series for beginning through advanced students, Real Reading provides students with a meaningful and authentic reading experience. Compelling readings in a variety of genres have been carefully written or adapted from authentic sources and feature a principled approach to vocabulary development.

Real Reading Features

Two thematically-related readings per unit encourage students to make connections. Reading and vocabulary skill building and vocabulary learning strategies based on Paul Nation's research help students become more confident and successful in preparation for academic reading and reading on standardized tests. Controlled vocabulary based on the General Service Word List, the Academic Word List, and the Billuroglu-Neufeld List ensures students' comprehension. Fluency Practice units improve reading speed and comprehension.
