The Laubach Way to Reading Series

The Laubach Way to Reading series is a basic reading and writing course for adult students. Even students with little or no reading experience can begin learning with success from the very first lesson.

The "Laubach method" starts with the known -- the spoken word -- and moves to the unknown -- the written word -- in easy steps that elicit the correct response from the student and reinforce it immediately. The emphasis is on learning by association rather than by rote memory. The Laubach series has been used successfully by thousands in volunteer tutoring, adult basic education programs, public schools, prisons, and libraries.

The series teaches basic reading and writing skills in a sequential and structured way. The learner progresses from the sounds and regular spellings of the consonants to those of the short vowels, the long vowels, and finally to irregular spellings and more difficult reading and writing skills.

The Laubach Way to Reading series has four skill books and four correlated readers. Both the student books and the accompanying teacher's manuals are necessary to provide the comprehensive basic reading program, which includes vocabulary building, phonics, structural analysis, comprehension, and study skills.
