6001.01-2SP Sentence Power Teacher Materials


Sentence Power is a language skill development and homework program that is specially designed to provide a highly motivating supplement to the Corrective Reading Decoding B1 Program.  This program is appropriate for students in Grades 3 to 12 and adults who are learning to read with the Corrective Reading Decoding B1 Program or any other remedial approach.  One of the features of this program is that it may be used with students who need to become more proficient in written expression. 

 The carefully designed teaching sequences are one of the reasons for the high level of student success.  As confidence and fluency develop through direct instruction lessons, students acquire skills that will enable them to become more skilled in classroom environments that are less structured.  Many of the exercises are designed to help students work toward developing the skills they will need to meet the standards for written expression expected on achievement tests.

 The teacher’s guidebook provides you with carefully planned teaching sequences that reinforce skills taught in the Corrective Reading Program.  Daily lessons provide students with many of the skills they need to become effective sentence writers.

 You may also use this program as an in-class program to provide additional written expression activities during class time.  If you select this option, student sheets would be completed during class time rather than sent home for homework.
