The six English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker workbooks are part of Fisher Hill’s English Structured Literacy Program for Spanish speakers. The Structured Literacy Program has six levels with four workbooks at each level: Reading and Spelling, Reading Comprehension, Writing Composition and Vocabulary. Each level begins with the Reading and Spelling workbook. https://www.fisher-hill.com/english-structured-literacy-program/
On our website, there are free placement tests to determine on which level a student should begin the Structured Literacy Program. A student needs a score of 80% to go to the next level. For example, if a student gets 60% on the placement test for level one, then that student needs to begin with Level 1. These placement tests can be found at https://www.fisher-hill.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Placement-Tests-Directions.pdf and https://www.fisher-hill.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Placement-Test-Level-1-2.png.
