CARS Plus - Teacher Guides
The comprehensive CARS & STARS program consists of ten levels (P–H) that allow you to identify and teach twelve reading and comprehension strategies, and improve literacy results. The program is divided into two parts: CARS (the assessment portion) and STARS (the instruction portion). Each CARS & STARS Plus level consists of both a student book and a teacher guide.
The research-based Strategies to Achieve Reading Success (STARS) Plus series provides explicit direct instruction in the 12 core reading strategies tested in CARS Plus. Each lesson is broken into five parts, providing a gradual release of responsibility and increase in student confidence. STARS Plus supports all student learning (including ELL/ESL/EAL-D learners) with prior knowledge activation, explicit instruction, graphic organisers and theme-based instruction. Multiple definitions and examples of each strategy within each lesson continually reinforce understanding. The easy-to-use, informative Teacher Guide makes every teacher a reading expert.
