Description Authors
 
The Reading Quest CD-ROM is a software program created for a target audience of reluctant older readers with very low reading ages. The program provides a carefully planned developmental sequence of literacy games in the five key areas crucial for successful reading: phonics, word structure, sight words, vocabulary and comprehension.

Use on PC and Mac computers or interactive whiteboards. The Reading Quest program runs from the disk or can be installed on a school network.

Reading Quest provides hundreds of fun-filled activities that reinforce key reading skills. There are four different quests or ‘worlds’:
  • Time Quest
  • Star Quest
  • Treasure Quest
  • Champion Quest

A voice over introduces each Quest narrative, with colourful characters and graphics. The player is the central character whose task is to secure the five fantastic quest objects. Players complete a series of assignments to gain credits. They require a minimum of 85% accuracy in each assignment to win each of the five fantastic quest objects. Activities can be repeated until they achieve the required level of accuracy.

The activities are grouped into the following five areas:
  • Phonics
  • Word Structure
  • Sight Words
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension

About this series:

The Reading Quest stories are exciting, action packed adventures with recurring characters and high quality colour illustrations. These books will help readers make the transition from short, simple texts to longer, more complex ones.

The Reading Quest Teaching Guide provides three photocopiable worksheets for each of the chapter books and reinforce comprehension, spelling, writing and grammar skills.

The Reading Quest chapter books can be used in conjunction with the CD-ROM or as stand-alone books for 10-15 year old reluctant readers. The narratives correspond to the themes of the four Quest worlds on the CD-ROM.
