What It Is: The Instructor's Manual for WLE Level 2 Competency-Based Reading/Writing Book is a 40-page supplement for those who are teaching themselves or others. The book includes an inbound copy of the 150-page student text. In accordance with its subtitle, “English in Everyday Life,” its ten (10) Chapter titles are the same as in the student text:
• Getting There • Problems & Solutions • Moving • Food & Things • The Family • The Community • Work • Shopping • Health • The Weekend & Vacations
Why You Need It: Whether you're teaching a class or learning on your own, you need your own copy of the text. Also, having teaching tips and techniques, exercise answers, and supplemental material at hand can be reassuring--and save time and trouble.
What It Does: The extra instructors' section at the end of the manual begins with suggested ways to optimize presentation and practice of various kinds of text sections. It's followed by an Answer Key for all text exercises. And if your program requires assessment of learning progress, the reproducible Progress Tests will save you the trouble of preparing your own.
