Helping struggling learners of literacy

In sport, we expect that some beginners will be stars and others merely plodders.  In class we expect that all beginners will be experts and able to master literacy easily – unlike other countries like Japan and China with difficult writing systems which give their beginners an easy way into literacy so that none need fail.


Beginning literacy reading materials

I like the stories on the Marshall Adult Education site (, but their 0.7 GLE stories are still too challenging for a couple adults we work with. We'd like to find ways to incorporate meaningful reading practice into class, but have exhausted our resources at that level.
