Midako’s has thus far developed two reading programs on reading. Our learning to read program has is backed by a textbook, 50 decodable books in 8 levels, 9 mini coloring books, 8 feedel posters, and teacher’s guide and uses a blend of phonic and iterative pattern recognition.
We have also developed a reading comprehension program. It has a textbook and 12 supplementary books. It teaches early readers basic story elements (character, setting and plot), cause and effect and compare and contrasts. It also trains children to make connections i.e. text to self, text to text and text to world.
In an effort to help Afan Oromo speaking children to read at their grade level, Midako has developed a draft textbook and 8 decodable books using the phonic method. Our plan is to test this materials while improving and further developing more decodable books and a complete reading program.
Midako has developed similar reading programs for learning to read and comprehension as the once it developed for Amhargna. It includes 2 text books and 62 decodable and supplementary reading materials.
