Overview

If you have been searching for reading materials that are both interesting and accessible to beginning adult and teen readers, look no further. Rosow builds this annotated bibliography of high-interest, low-reading-level fiction and nonfiction materials around themes that appeal to adults. She covers a variety of resources, from books and chapters of books to magazine articles and letters, organizing them from easier to more difficult reading levels to help readers progress with their reading. Dozens of dialogue and writing activities are suggested for each subject area. Most can be used with any size group, from one-on-one tutoring situations to large multiethnic classes of students with a range of reading and writing abilities. Perfect for adult and family literacy programs, ESL students, teen remedial reading classes, and readers' advisory, this book is a great tool for motivating and empowering students to read.

The entries are numbered consecutively, with a total of
