Our Dynamic Dual
Our dynamic dual combines two great resources

Climbing to Good English - solid instruction in grammar and writing skills, along with the teaching of methods for research, writing assignments covering a variety of writing styles, poetry, letter writing and more. Although graded from first through eighth grade, consider these books more as levels, particularly from level three and on. By the eighth level you or your student will have skills at a 12th grade level. Indeed, we have had eleventh and twelfth grade students study the levels seven and eight and been prepared for college and university English. In fact, we have heard of some students even testing out of first year college and university English courses based on the strength of the skills taught in Climbing to Good English. There is no "busy work," and the books progress in such a fashion that you arrive at the end with ease and confidence. Use on its own, or, combine it with the Pathway Readers.

Pathway Readers - a graded reader-based program for teaching reading comprehension and, in the early readers, phonics.

For Your Convenience - Language Arts Kits
The Pathway Reader series, the Pathway Working With Words vocabulary development workbooks and the Climbing to Good English curriculum are available for individual purchase. We have also assembled these fine resources as graded kits for your convenience.

Not sure which books your child needs to match their reading level?
Try our placement test for Pathway Readers. This test will work for up to the end of third grade and will automatically tell you what reader you need to begin with. "Climbing to Good English" sample lessons, and the Tables of Contents for each book gives you an overview of what is covered.

So, your child is all over the map and not at one specific grade level for academic skills? We can help you!

Do you, as a young person, young adult or adult need to improve your understanding and use of the English language? We can help you!
