The articles in the Reader vary in subject matter, length, and style of writing in order to give the students a wide range of reading exposure. Some are light in tone but informative; others are serious and content-heavy. The reading materials thus provide exciting opportunities for learning.
The recommended activities contained in this accompanying teacher’s guide train the students to become effective readers. The activities are grouped into 1) a motivating introduction that builds up on the learner’s schema, their prior knowledge and their skills required in their earlier years of schooling, 2) the lesson proper, where guide questions lead to activities that develop and enhance the learning competencies of the students, and 3) concluding activities that encourage the students to apply their new learnings to practical situations independently.
The teacher’s are encouraged to use this guide as a springboard for lively classroom discussions. For this reason, most of the selections contain only general instructions to give room for the teachers to innovate and adapt the materials to their classroom conditions.
Some reactions include more detailed explanations to facilitate discussions on more specialized topics. The expanded activities found in these actions serve as lesson exemplars.
