100RA Following
Directions
The first section of Following Directions 100RA
emphasizes the interaction of directional concepts.
Students follow directions to interpret compass points
and to master the concepts of right and left. Many
exercises in this program employ the symbols found in the
alphabet, numerical symbols, and monetary symbols.
Students identify the correct procedure to follow when
telephoning in case of fire or danger. They are required
to interpret and make simple calculations using money.
Students figure ascents and descents on a set of stairs.
In the last section of this program, emphasis is placed
on the logical sequence of directions for filling out a
form, taking a bath, preparing a meal, and using a
cleaning product. Students must accurately interpret a
table in order to answer questions concerning type size
for printing.

100RB Reference Skills
In Reference Skills 100RB, the student is
shown that everyone has a need for information and that
there are many kinds of reference materials. The
identification and recognition of standard reference
materials as well as other reference aids are the
subjects of many exercises. Other exercises teach the
student to identify parts of books. Alphabetical order is
discussed. Graphs and road maps make up the latter part
of the program. The presentation is simple, but no
attempt is made to avoid the use of basic subject matter
terminology. Such terms are clearly explained.

100RC Interpretations I
Historical and actual situations provide
the basis for Interpretations I 100RC. Short paragraphs
and stories describe realistic situations and require the
student to apply basic reading interpretation skills: the
identification of word meaning and main idea and
author’s purpose. Some more advanced reading skills
are described in simple language. Students learn to
recognize the logical organization of written material,
make inferences, and distinguish fact from opinion and
fiction from nonfiction.

Interpretations I 100RC is the
goal of this program. Informative articles, anecdotes,
and short stories provide the framework for study.
Emphasis is placed on the skill of inferring information
from material read. Students learn to differentiate
between humorous, informative, and persuasive types of
writing. Students also learn to read critically, making
distinctions between fact and opinion, and noticing that
opinions may be stated as facts. Students are made aware
that readers must learn to judge as well as interpret
what they read, hear, and see.

100RF Phonic Analysis
Knowing the sounds that letters stand for
increases one’s ability to learn new words. Phonic
Analysis BLS100RF introduces students to the fundamentals
of the English language that determine how words are
pronounced. Students learn to identify vowels and
consonants. Rhyming words are used to teach the sounds
found at the end of words. Patterns for sounds are
investigated; for example, students study the silent e
and hard and soft c, and the difference between initial,
medial, and final vowel sounds. Digraphs are explained
along with two and threeletter blends. Students learn
to identify syllables and to recognize where stress is
placed in a word. There is also an explanation about
rcontrolled vowels. Students are alerted to the fact
that phonic patterns are not the sole determinant of the
pronunciation of words, but that they must be used in
combination with clues found in the context of sentences.

200RC Interpretations I
In the Interpretations 200RC program,
students interpret series of paragraphs relating to
science. Facts about earthworms, hiking near the
timberline, whales, and the moon are presented in
paragraph form. A number of lessons require students to
identify facts and then to draw inferences from these
facts. Students learn to define unfamiliar terms by
making contextual analyses. Identification of main ideas
is reviewed by having students select titles and supply
the completing sentence for several paragraphs. Students
learn to distinguish between fact and fantasy and are
encouraged to project their thoughts and describe their
feelings in relation to what they read.

General interest descriptions are
presented for analysis: a city park, a country scene in
summer, a city at night, a personal reaction to a play,
and a public speaking experience. Successful
interpretation of these passages requires students to
examine figures of speech, opinions, and differing points
of view. At this level, students must identify accurate
paraphrases of information contained in written passages
and must complete paragraphs and select titles on the
basis of relevance to the contents of a passage. Students
study inferences, identify and study the turning point of
a story, and learn about the subjective nature of
personal expression. Students imagine themselves in
certain situations and then evaluate reactions to given
situations.

Skills
Students make slightly more complex word
analyses in this program than they do at the 100 level.
Students learn to identify synonyms, antonyms, homonyms,
and compound words in order to use them to find word
meanings. Students learn to read commas as punctuation
signals for word meaning and to apply direct definition
clues. Students are also taught how to use a dictionary
effectively to: determine word pronunciation, spelling,
and definition; find synonyms for a word; and learn the
different shades of meaning attributed to a word. The
program contains two crossword puzzles. One provides
practice in using antonyms, the other in building words
from a common root.

units of sound and into units of meaning. Compound words
are explained, and accents, as guides to the recognition
of compound words, are studied. Students study
inflectional endings by learning to distinguish between
contractions and possessives. A major portion of the
program teaches students to determine word meaning by
analyzing roots, prefixes, and suffixes. The students
learn to construct words using their acquired knowledge
of these word parts. Throughout the program, students are
encouraged to use dictionaries as guides to word analysis
and meaning.

Most of the material in this program is
patterned after actual printed forms, instructions, and
applications. Introductory lessons teach a few guidelines
for following oral and written directions. Then students
work through several procedures that point out the
logical sequence of directions. Students apply
instructions to identify a pattern of stars, interpret
and use directional symbols, use a telephone, and do the
laundry. Students follow instructions for writing
addresses, using zip codes, reading bus schedules, and
filling out income tax return forms and bank checks.

300RC Interpretations I
This Reading Interpretations program
emphasizes the importance of determining meaning by
contextual analyses. Students must define words and
determine the meaning of sentences as they are used in
various contexts. A discussion of progress in the United
States, an account of three persons racing up a hill, a
detailed description of a person buying a used car, and a
review of the facts surrounding the arrival of the first
English colonists on the North American coast are all to
be interpreted by the student. The language level is more
advanced, and the sentence and paragraph structure more
complex than in the Level 200 programs. Students must
learn to paraphrase dictionary definitions of words,
identify key structures in paragraphs, and draw
inferences that require careful examination of written
material. Students are required to imagine themselves in
a given situation in order to determine a fictional
character’s probable motive for action. Students are
asked to determine authors’ intentions, to make
reasonable conjectures based on their interpretations of
certain reading material, and to relate effect to cause.

Interpretations II
Relevant topics of discussion furnish
interesting material for this Reading Interpretations
program. Students apply skills learned in Interpretations
I 300RC to interpret complex reading material similar to
that which they might encounter in their daily
activities. The contents of the program include an
article describing a reforestation project, an article
describing an urban housing project, a personal letter
containing advice about job interviews, an article
explaining the facts of traffic flow on the streets and
highways of the United States, and two letters to the
editor that discuss a proposed solar energy program.
Students practice identifying word meanings by contextual
analyses, identifying key sentences of paragraphs, and
making judgments and inferences based on given
information. Students learn to use the context of a
passage as a clue for determining the intention of an
author. Emphasis is placed on the need for reading
critically. Students make judgments and study subtle
distinctions between fact and opinion. Students must
identify opinion stated as fact and be able to recognize
facts even when presented in sentences that also express
opinions, judgments, and beliefs.

The second major portion of the program teaches accurate
use of context clues to determine word meaning. Students
practice identifying and analyzing key words and phrases,
punctuation signals and direct definitions, and synonyms
and antonyms. One crossword puzzle is solved with words
found on job application forms and savings and checking
account forms. Students are required to identify
figurative expressions and to determine their meaning in
a given context. The final section of this program

Following Directions 400RA provides
students with practice following complex instructions
applied to a variety of practical situations. Guidelines
are presented for following complex oral and written
directions. At this level, students are required to use
personal judgment to carry out instructions under
changing circumstances. Introductory lessons reemphasize
the necessity to read directions carefully and to follow
procedures exactly. Students follow instructions in a
test situation, decide on the most efficient use of time
in a purchasing situation, make accurate use of a
100year perpetual calendar and its index, and interpret
and use map coordinates and symbols and weather symbols.
Students learn the vocabulary that is associated with
printed forms and practice the skills necessary to fill
out job applications, bank forms and applications, and
income tax forms. Students also interpret and apply
knowledge obtained from newspaper want ads. In the final
portion of this program, students must determine the
purpose of given sets of instructions so that they can
act responsibly in situations for which their original
instructions are no longer valid.

Material in this program is designed to
challenge the student and stimulate an awareness of
critical thinking skills. Skills taught at the 300 level
(paraphrasing; making inferences; identifying
implications, points of view, and organization of
material) are applied to advanced contexts. Letters
revealing contrasting attitudes toward a home situation
provide vehicles for lessons on figurative language,
logical deduction, formal versus informal communication,
and interpretation of character motive and attitude.
Students have occasion to express their opinions based on
their conclusions. In an examination of a scientific
article about the amazing ability of two brothers,
students become familiar with logical organization of
factual material, tone and mood, fact versus opinion, and
internal evidence for conclusions. The final section of
the program introduces the study of propoganda. Students
are taught to search out the real message in what they
read, hear, or see. Short paragraphs, advertisements, and
commercials provide the basis for the study of the most
common techniques of persuasion.

Skills
In Vocabulary Skills 400, emphasis is
placed on the tools for analyzing words and their use.
Much information is introduced in each lesson, and there
is less review than contained in levels 100, 200, and
300. Students make more subtle analyses of words in
context than they do at the 300 level. Several major
prefixes, roots, and suffixes are introduced for the
students’ information. Students must define words by
context clues—words and phrases that surround an
unfamiliar word, punctuation, and comparisons and
contrasts made within the paragraph. In the final portion
of this program, the focus is on word imagery and word
usage. Students are required to identify words that fit
the tone and mood of a passage. They also analyze the
connotative meanings of words and practice identifying
words and phrases intended to influence the reader or
listener. An advertisement is used to explain the
necessity of reading critically to find a purpose that is
often hidden behind carefully chosen words.
