MRI: Mature Reading Instruction Level 1


Mature Reading Instruction (MRI) offers a second chance for those who have fallen through the educational net.

As Basil slays the dragon, Pandora opens her box and Ali Baba’s servant-girl foils the forty thieves, the groundwork for lifelong literacy is carefully laid according to Synthetic Phonics principles.

MRI Tutor Guide

The MRI series works perfectly well without the Tutor Guide.  However, if you are a teaching professional, the guide offers practical advice, background information about the stories, record keeping, fluency practice, copying and dictation exercises, FAQs and assessments.
