This series was developed by Australian authors for Australian readers. The reading levels were set at reading ages of approximately 6-7 year old, or about Reading Recovery levels 20-25. The content is suitable for adolescents to adults. The sight words are introduced to be reviewed before reading. And after reading, there are extension exercises to improve reading and writing skills. You are all experiencing students with self-esteem and anxiety concerns in regard to success with reading.
The content is curriculum-based whether this be related to Australian history for example, the Gold Rushes or Leichhardt, Indigenous perspectives, Asian-based stories and Sustainability. The whole design was to provide short sentences, using informal vernacular without slang or crude-talk, to allow fluency of reading numerous pages.
The Teacher Guides are comprehensive and is in the 'before reading' exercises, addressing familiarity with the sight words and 'after reading', is extending with reading, writing, and comprehension. It is aimed at building word vocabulary, sight words, and writing practice exercises.
