Reading Mastery Signature Edition uses the highly explicit, systematic approach of Direct Instruction (DI) to accelerate reading and help students achieve a high rate of success. Three strands address Reading, Language Arts, and Literature through a common instructional design that helps students learn more efficiently.
The Reading Mastery program contains:
- Reading, Language Arts, and Literacy strands that can be used separately or together as a comprehensive system
- Data-driven placement for placing students at the appropriate instructional level
- Continuous curriculum-based assessments and remedies that allow teachers to monitor student progress and correct errors as they occur.
Oral language skills are an essential part of learning to read. The early grades of Reading Mastery teach oral language skills necessary to understand what is spoken, written, and read in the classroom. Starting at Grade K, students learn the important background information, vocabulary, and thinking skills they need to achieve high levels of comprehension, using the Language Strand materials.
The Reading Mastery - Language (Grade 1): Teacher Materials includes:
- Teacher presentation books
- Teacher's guide
- Answer key
