Beth is new to the group – welcome, Beth! – and asks this great question. I hope we can provide some concrete answers:
I’m so excited that I finally got subscribed to your blog today. I have been using TPRS for over 15 years. We haven’t had textbooks for that long and I love it. Our school system has supported us by letting us use book rental to buy readers over the years. This year our school system went to ipads and they are now reluctant to buy readers.
They say that we should find online sources. I don’t believe that currently I can find great readers like we have from Blaine Ray or like we want to be purchasing from Carol Gaab online. Even if we found them online, I’d think they’d cost something. Do you know of any readers that are leveled for CI like those I mentioned online? I need to bring back research that I’ve found to my administrator. Or do you know of others that I should ask? If there is something out there, I need to find it and the cost. If there isn’t anything out there online yet, I need to know that as well.
THANKS FOR ANY HELP OR ADVICE YOU CAN OFFER!
