Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0340711671, Paperback)To ensure accessibility and readability, Hodder & Stoughton have worked with The Basic Skills Agency on "Livewire" - a series of reading material with a teenage or adult interest level for those with a reading age of 10 or below, or for adult students learning English as a second or foreign language. It offers teenagers and adults appropriate fiction and non-fiction which is graded at reading ages 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, and 9-10. The books aim to engage the interest of the reader in a motivating and non-patronizing way, and lead him or her towards the attainment of a higher reading level. "Livewire Real Lives" is in the non-fiction part of the series and provides illustrated biographies in the categories of sport, film, music, politics and history, and may be used in the Literacy Hour to bridge the gap between NC levels 2/3 and level 4. It is designed to be accessible in layout and content and offers facts and photographs to sustain the interest of the beginner reader. All "Livewire" books are written by experienced and qualified special needs teachers.
