Our collection of forty theme-based readers, along with an instructors guide, will support ESL literacy instructors to create comprehensive, theme-based lessons for adult ESL literacy learners.
The themes were carefully chosen and are both of high interest to learners, and more importantly, relevant to their lives. Every effort was made to ensure the stories would authentically represent learners themselves as well as events and issues that a typical learner may experience.
ESL Literacy Readers Page
This page is for instructors and includes valuable information about the ESL Literacy Readers, including an Instructor Guide. There are two versions of each of the Readers. The Audio Book allows you to preview the contents of the book. The Print PDF has the book laid out for printing as a booklet.
Use the Learner Page to access the Readers with your learners. The simple and uncluttered webpage is designed especially for learners. The Readers are available in a digital audio book format.
The ESL Literacy Readers Guide supports the use of the Readers in the classroom. Included in this guide are pre-reading and extension ideas to enable you to create comprehensive, theme-based lessons for adult ESL literacy learners. The guide also contains a list of best practices for creating ESL literacy stories.
