The resources on this page are free hi-lo readers organized to parallel the theme-based vocabulary units. Typically, instructors/tutors should lay vocabulary groundwork before introducing learners to these stories. The stories are a continuation of vocabulary acquisition plus a bridge toward meaning-making with text. The stories are a compilation of readers created by the Pathway to Literacy team or adapted from stories produced by Literacy Minnesota, Bow Valley School of Global Access, We Speak NYC, and CIWA.
Overview of Approach
The scaffolded reading approach, which is outlined below, is used with learners in the classroom.
To this approach demonstrated, watch the Recording Classroom Assistant Training (1.5-hour video).
Printable formats will be added as they become available! In the interim, story slides can be modified and printed for in person classes.
