Trio Reading prepares students for academic success by introducing reading skills early.

Readiness Unit
For added flexibility, each level of Trio Reading begins with an optional Readiness Unit to provide fundamental English tools for beginning students.

Vocabulary based on the Oxford 2000 keywords
Trio Reading’s vocabulary is based on the 2,000 most important and useful words to learn at the early stages of language learning.

The combination of academic topics and controlled vocabulary based on the Oxford 2000 word list makes content in Trio Reading approachable for low-level learners.

Trio Reading begins each chapter by introducing Oxford 2000 vocabulary. It contextualizes the vocabulary within reading texts, while vocabulary strategies help students to understand the words in use.

Develops critical thinking
Make Connections sections encourage the development of critical thinking skills by asking learners to draw connections between themselves, texts, and the world around them.

Accessible paired readings encourage students to make connections between texts, developing critical thinking.

Creates fluent readers
Sounds of English boxes provide sound-spelling decoding practice to increase reading fluency, and Vocabulary and Reading Strategies teach the most useful skills students need for successful reading.

Motivating Vocabulary and Grammar Chants help students internalize the target grammar structure and vocabulary for greater accuracy and fluency when reading.

Each unit of Trio Reading is accompanied by a variety of automatically-graded activities. Students’ progress is recorded, tracked, and fed back to the instructor.
