Third Edition

Train your students to read rapidly with comprehension!

The worktexts can be used in two different ways:

  • As part of a lesson in the regular reading and/or Communication Arts Program
  • As the main text in an extensive course for mastering the four fundamental reading skills

Each PLP worktext is organized into five major reading areas—each developing a cluster of important subskills needed for an effective reading course.

  • Word perception skills enable students to use phonetic, contextual, and structural analyses. These skills build special vocabulary and use effective strategies in word building.
  • Study and library skills teach students how to locate and gather information. These skills help the students select, recall, evaluate data, and organize and synthesize information.
  • Comprehension skills help students identify main ideas, understand cause-and-effect relationships, determine time line sequence, and summarize and outline data.
  • Literary appreciation skills enrich students’ knowledge as students differentiate literary types; identify tone, mood, and atmosphere; analyze humor; and evaluate critical and creative writing.
  • Oral interpretation or reading with expression skills intend to develop the students’ ability to read with expression and interpret literary pieces with proper phrasing or chunking, movements, and expressions. These skills provide the teachers with new literary materials and interesting selections for finger plays, Jazz Chants, Speech Choir, dramatic oral reading, and Chamber or Readers Theater presentation.

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
