Story by Story is a contextual phonics model and curriculum for low-literacy adults, both native English speakers and English Language Learners. This resource consists of 115 stories at approximately 0.5-2.5 Grade Equivalent with "adult-authentic" text that adults want to read concerning everyday activities such as working, community, shopping, and parenting. Story by Story combines phonics with fluency/comprehension activities for balanced literacy instruction. It provides a prescriptive model where sound/letter knowledge is assessed before placement in the curriculum and during/after instruction to measure progress.
