Special Children magazine review
First pubilshed in Special Children magazine in 2011, Graeme Whyte examines how Rapid Plus builds on the primary Rapid literacy scheme, and looks at how effective the programme is at getting struggling students excited about reading.
“There are assessment books for each level, a teacher’s guide and online software for independent work at home or at school. The programme has been thoroughly prepared. The books are carefully graded to move up steadily from a reading age of 6.6 to 8.6. Three new sets appear in 2012 taking the reading level to 9.6…the teaching guide will prove very useful.
