The philosophy that underpins all of the material within the PM Collection is that
students learn to read well if they are encouraged to use a variety of skills, processes and behaviours, rather than a particular method or approach.
when students are learning to read, they should be given materials that have been carefully crafted to meet their needs; books that give them, from their earliest experiences with the printed word, success, enjoyment and understanding.
Every book in the PM Collection has been shaped to support these twin tenets. On every page, in every book, care is taken with the sentence structures, the choice of words, the clear well-spaced type, and with the accurate meaningful illustrations or photographs. Because the books are easy as well as interesting, students are able to practise a variety of reading skills and enjoy the feedback of success.
Each fiction book has a classic story structure and deals with concepts and experiences students can understand. It is a real reading experience and has an intrinsic worth because it offers students a proper story structure with tension, climax and resolution.
In the PM non-fiction titles, the texts are carefully researched, accurate and truthful in the way they deal with the subject matter. Clear and logical presentation of the facts coupled with superb photography and realistic illustrations make the books relevant, satisfying and enjoyable to read.
A delight in the truth and a respect for the real world in all its diversity are very much part of the PM meaning-driven philosophy. Meaning is paramount in every title in the PM Collection.
