Reading Bridge is a series of readers that provides a bridge from Reading Milestones to general reading materials at fourth- and fifth-grade levels. These readers are specifically constructed for deaf students and for other language-different or language-variant populations, such as students learning English a a second language.
Reading Bridge introduces vocabulary, language structures, and comprehension skills in the same spiraling, researched-based approach as in Reading Milestones but at an accelerated rate and more advanced level. The Reading Bridge readers are presented in adult-format, hard-cover books, making them more appealing to students desiring an adult-looking product.
Reading Bridge consists of four teacher's guides, four student texts, and four student workbooks. The Reading Bridge program has two levels with two books at each level. The content of each book is addressed in the teacher's guides. Proed
