Our Diverse Student Body
1. Home Schoolers
First and foremost, TL is designed for children of dedicated parents who expect their little ones to rise to stellar heights.
To maximize parental involvement, all TL products, particularly TRWRR, have been designed to be as much fun for parents as they are for children. Even Lullabies and Nursery Rhymes will delight parents. They may sing along while their babies and toddlers are lulled to sleep.
2. Rank Beginning Readers
TL has several products that youngsters can use for months on end without formally being taught to read. Phonics Drills & Exercises will teach them to decode words. Printing and Cursive Exercises expressly develops manual dexterity while subtly developing emergent reading skill. And Play Onwards, which further increases phonics awareness, also expands vocabulary greatly as well as develops basic spelling skill.
3. 1st Graders & Above
Because The Red Well-Read Reader stories are typically rather sophisticated in part―young students, even older ones―will not understand them implicitly. Yet, students will not fail to sense the ever-present, intrinsic humor. Thus, they should never get bored, even a bit.
Being that TRWRR stories normally have just one rhyme, the level of difficulty remains constant throughout the book. Thus, a slow learner will never feel overwhelmed and quit trying to learn to read altogether. Likewise, a mentally-challenged student should have no difficulty proceeding from one story to the next.
4. 3rd and 4th Graders & Above
TL has three products for students who already know how to read well but want to develop their ability in other literacy arts. One, Work on Words, a vocabulary builder designed particularly for youngsters, can actually help anyone―even professional writers, college professors, and mom and dad―hone his or her vocabulary skill. Two, some of Anti-Illiteracy War Games can help older elementary-school-age students build such literacy skills as writing and speech. And, three, Classic Stories will nurture their literary appreciation.
5. Special Needs Students
Children with Dyslexia
Nearly every product in TL’s Anti-Illiteracy War arsenal that is designed for the general population is also helpful to students with dyslexia. In fact, virtually all of TL’s products are designed precisely as the Orton–Gillingham Method propounds.
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
TL’s many colored-charts, TRWRR’s stories, and a number of classic ones are helpful to special needs students. Perhaps the biggest help to ASD students is the Immersive Reader, whereon their interface they can see practically every noun and verb of any TRWRR story in picture form.
6. Older Children & Adults in Reading Programs
Because TRWRR stories are well-suited for classroom settings having students of various ages and aptitudes, and because none of TL’s products ever talks down to students, middle school students to seniors will not feel embarrassed, belittled, or ashamed. Hence, TL and TRWRR can easily be incorporated into the curriculum of the following educational entities: Private & Public Schools, Literacy Councils, Jails and Prisons.
7. Spanish Speakers
TL has three products that are particularly helpful to Spanish speakers. One, Phonics Charts and Drills will aid them greatly with pronunciation and spelling. Two, the Spanish-English Flipbook allows them to easily compare the structure of the two languages as well as to grasp the humor of the English narrations. And, three, each Spanish-English PDF provides them the ability to hear both languages in a choice of several TTS voices.
8. Other Foreign Speakers
Like Hispanics and Spaniards, all other foreign speakers will benefit hugely from Phonics Charts and Drills. And although each of the 12 other foreign flag languages initially has only 30 TRWRR stories translated into its respective language, with a few clicks of one’s mouse all 361 of them can be audio-visually translated into anyone of these languages.
