Be thankful if you can read!
According to a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy, 32 million adults in the U.S. can’t read.
According to the Department of Justice, “The link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure.” According to BegintoRead.com “85 percent of all juveniles who interface with the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate, and over 70 percent of inmates in America’s prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level.” Economic security, access to health care, and the ability to actively participate in civic life all depend on an individual’s ability to read.
Fisher Hill workbooks are especially good for teens and adults who have had difficulty learning to read. Our workbooks provide a very systematic and explicit approach to teaching the English speech sounds that are necessary for reading and spelling. Our books are geared toward Spanish-speaking teens and adults because the instructions are in Spanish and the content is for older students. English translations are located at the back of each workbook. The workbooks provide practice, pictures and large print to make learning to read easier and more enjoyable.
Visit our website at www.Fisher-Hill.com to see all of our workbooks for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn how to read and write in English.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
