Audio-Assisted Reading
Improve reading comprehension and fluency with audio-assisted reading. Helping students become fluent readers has challenged teachers for a long time. Listening to a model reader read a passage and then practicing reading aloud helps students improve their fluency. Research has demonstrated that assisted reading positively affects fluency and comprehension.

Teacher Guides
The Sundance Hi-Lo Reading Teacher Guides provide an 8-page lesson plan for each title in the series that includes 6 reproducible skill sheets for every book!
