Ready to Go is a four-level standards-based course that readies adults for self-sufficiency in the three principal areas of their lives: the community, the home, and the workplace. Ready to Go tightly incorporates the major state and federal standards to a complete language syllabus and relevant and practical social language.
Ready to Go 1, by Joan Saslow and Tim Collins, is written for beginning learners. It rapidly enables them to:
- understand spoken and written general language.
- communicate orally and in writing.
- understand the culture and civic expectations of their new environment.
- master lifeskills necessary to survive vand thrive in the American community and workplace.
Ready to Go is correlated to the following national standards: SCANS Competencies and Foundation Skills, CASAS Life Skill Competencies, EFF Content Standards, and NRS ESL Levels. All correlations are downloadable from the Ready to Go companion website.
