The process of reading comprehension is not simply that of reading words.

The causes of reading comprehension failure are complex, and the instructional solutions to this failure are equally complex. The teaching of comprehension requires the explicit instruction of a number of comprehension sub-skills, including semantics (vocabulary), syntax (sentence structure), grammar, punctuation, language skills, general knowledge, self-monitoring skills, thinking skills and various question types organised on a number of difficulty levels.

Comprehension Manual
   #16101 $44.00

This manual introduces research-based information for the teaching of comprehension skills.  It describes the main subtasks of a comprehension program as well as assessment samples on four levels of difficulty.  A set of teacher preparation sheets and some generic comprehension instruction procedures are provided to aid in lesson programming.

Alphabetical Ordering   #16102  $33.00

Students need to be able to understand alphabetical ordering so that they may access information in encyclopedias, dictionaries, book indexes, telephone directories, street directories and atlases.

This book of practice sheets has been structured in the following ways:

• The order of the words used in the exercises follows the order that words are taught in the Ants in the Apple Regular Words Books 1, 2 and 3.
• Progression from easiest ordering task to hardest task.
• Names (as in a telephone directory)
• Streets (as in a street directory)
• Countries (as in an atlas)
