What It Is: The Instructor's Manual for the WLE Level 3 Competency-Based Reading/Writing Book is a 40-page supplement for those who are teaching others and/or themselves to optimize the benefits of the learning material it is based on. The manual includes a complete copy of the 138-page student book it refers to. In accordance with its level 3 theme, “An Immigration Story," its ten (10) Chapter titles are the same as in all the books of this level.
Why You Need It: Whether you're teaching a class or learning on your own, you need your own copy of the material you're working with. Also, having teaching tips and techniques, exercise answers, and supplemental material at hand can be reassuring--and save everyone 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--or even for your own purposes, the reproducible Progress Tests will help.
