Publications

Ready-Ed Publications was established in 1984 with the purpose of creating practical classroom blackline master activities. At the time, the role of the teacher was becoming ever more diverse with an increasing range of duties and responsibilities within the school and school community. Since then, the role of the teacher has continued to evolve with an escalating range of tasks and obligations, ensuring a reduction in time available to prepare work for the daily instructional program. Throughout these past 24 years, Ready-Ed Publications has built a reputation as publishers of Australian made, high quality, innovative, timesaving materials for teachers of primary and lower secondary levels. In addition, all materials are based on state or national curriculum guidelines or specific age-related interest areas and subjects. Ready-Ed Publications aims to assist busy professionals by making available contemporary classroom materials that contain relevant and stimulating work to support the requirements of the curriculum.

Teachers’ Notes

This is a Ready-Ed Publications' book preview. Easy Read and Write is the second book in the Easy English Series for students learning English as a Second Language as well as Aboriginal students learning English as a Second Dialect, that is, students who are coming into the school system having little or no experience of English.

ESL/ESD learners need an explicit, methodical and planned language program that can be integrated into their class work in all key learning areas. It is important for the teacher to establish a supportive classroom environment where the student’s first language and culture are valued. This will nurture the student’s selfesteem and encourage him/her to gain confidence in the early stages of learning a new language. Use of cooperative learning strategies and peer tutoring will help the student build social friendships which are an integral part of developing language skills. It is important for the teacher to be aware that using short, positive sentences is best for the learner.

The teacher must provide time for the student to process statements and instructions and always check for the student’s understanding.

The teacher’s gestures and facial expressions plus visual clues (photos, pictures, objects, etc) will help the student make meaning. Regular and positive feedback from the teacher will consolidate the student’s sense of achievement and encourage the self confidence. Easy Read and Write (Book 2) builds on the thematic vocabulary introduced in Easy Words (Book 1). It contains six short stories based on familiar topics and vocabulary introduced in Book 1. Each double page features a story and activities based on the story to provide easy reference for the student and to build the student’s confidence and skills. Other books in the series focus on reading, writing, punctuation and grammar, text types and the skills of editing and proofreading.
