Reading AII

The goal of Level AII is for students to develop their ability to visualize the contents of a passage by paying attention to sentence topics and understanding the sequence of events within the passage. Students will also learn to improve their ability to read and write simple sentences.

● Level AII Goals:

  • Read sentences quickly and accurately

  • Improve sentence comprehension by paying attention to the subject

  • Understand the sequence of events in a passage

  • Practice key vocabulary

● Good Work Skills in this level include:

  • Reading directions and examples carefully

  • Reading passages for comprehension

  • Being able to remember and completely write the correct answer or sentence

  • Writing neatly within the box or line provided

  • Writing the same size as the words on the page

  • Re-reading answers to verify they are correct

  • Ability to correct easily and independently (don’t forget to grade every day!)

● Time Goal:

  • 2-3 minutes per page

  • The study time goal is 15-20 minutes per day

  • Your Instructor will continually adjust the pages to adhere to this goal

● Grading Reminders:

  • Students must be able to learn from their mistakes daily

  • Take the time to grade and let them find and correct their own errors independently

  • Students can use what they have learned and apply it to the next day’s assignment allowing them to move smoothly and independently through the assignments
