Information for Teachers
Readable English is a decoding tool that is designed to be integrated into any course curriculum. Consequently, students can get the support they need with the materials they are expected to read until that support is no longer needed – it’s like training wheels for reading.
What issues does Readable English address?
Students not achieving the required standard
Quantified in-school trials have demonstrated the evidence for Readable English’s success.
It can be time consuming for students to achieve results
Trials show a consistent improvement in the time taken to learn to read.
Reading programmes can be costly
Specific pricing for schools is available as an alternative to the promoted price per student.
Classes often contain students at a wide range of reading levels
Readable English works at the student level. Each student is able to progress at their own pace.
Student attention and motivation can be variable. Absenteeism can result
Studies have shown that use of Readable English increases student enjoyment of and engagement with the learning process, resulting in improved student attention and better learning outcomes.
Students’ native language is not English
The removal of the irregularities of written English increases the student’s ability to decode the word, increasing their ability to understand it.
Students may have very little home support
The decomplexifying of written English reduces the requirement for home support. Students are able to practise reading online, at home.
Teachers have too many students at a time – there is insufficient one to one time
The decomplexifying of written English reduces the requirement for individual support, freeing teachers up for higher quality student time.
My course offers rolling enrolments
We have found that student mentoring and use of hard copy glyph charts combined with the resources available on the website provide a solution.
