Be a Better Reader (BABR) has been successful for over 30 years in helping striving middle and high school students master reading skills across the curriculum. High-interest, content-area reading selections and skill instruction in literature, social studies, science, and mathematics introduce and reinforce content-specific reading skills.
BABR consists of eight levels that correspond to reading levels 3-10. Each level introduces key reading, comprehension, and study skills, and provides practice to apply these skills. Since all texts share a similar design and format, they can be used in a variety of classroom settings with students working below, at, or above a specific reading level.
BABR also includes materials designed to help students transition seamlessly from Caught Reading, a Pearson reading and skills program for reading levels Pre-Literacy-4.
