A creative and flexible reading program offering both an extensive reading list, and a simple method for students to select books not on the list, but that they're interested in. A simple system is suggested which will allow teachers or tutors to rapidly evaluate the difficulty of each selected book.
This popular program provides the tutor and the student tools needed to get the most out of reading. The tutor is provided a lengthy suggested reading list broken into two reading age groups, and genres including the typical, and the unusual such as theatre and musical theatre. They are also given a system of evaluation, so that the student or teacher may feel free to select books not on the suggested list, and the teacher may determine the difficulty and "value" of the selected book within the program, freeing the student to read books of their choice. A system is also offered of reportage on the part of the student which allows the student to rapidly verify that the book was in fact read, and that vocabulary was developed as a partial result. In fact, the method used virtually guarantees the student's vocabulary will grow as they read!
