The new Specific Skill Series is a non-consumable program designed to develop nine crucial reading skills: Working Within Words, Following Directions, Using the Context, Locating the Answer, Getting the Facts, Getting the Main Idea, Drawing Conclusions, Detecting the Sequence, and Identifying Inferences. Each skill is developed through a series of books that spans ten levels (Picture Level, Preparatory Level, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H). The A books are suitable for pupils on the first reading level. Books B, C, D, E, F, G, H are appropriate for pupils who can read material on levels tow through eight, respectively. The Specific Skill Series gives students specific and concentrated experiences in reading for different purposes. It provides practice material for pupils on ten different levels. Each reading skill has certain distinctive characteristics. Thus it is that practice in any single one helps only to a limited degree in improving in the others. For example, reading for the main idea, while extremely important in itself, does not necessarily improve one's skill in following directions. Subtle techniques, specific to each sill, provide the rationale for the development of the series.
