새로이 발굴된 맥밀란 출판사의 리더스로 구성되어 있습니다. 영국 옥스퍼드에 본사를 두고 있는 맥밀란 출판사는 170년 역사의 세계적인 명성에 맞는 출판사이지만, 리더스나 스토리북으로는 국내에 많이 소개되지 않았습니다. 캥거루 리딩에서는 맥밀란 에듀케이션의 스토리북 천 여권을 이라이브러리 컨텐츠로 구성하여 국내에 소개합니다. 학습자가 독서에 대한 흥미를 높일 수 있는 다양한 장르와 토픽의 교재로 구성되어 있는 맥밀란 컨텐츠는 전체적으로는 픽션과 논픽션의 비율이 50:50으로 조화를 이루면서 학습자들의 연령과 학습 수준에 맞게 자여 있어 초중기 독서 단계에 있는 학생들에게 적합합니다. 또한 국제적인 리딩 표준인 Lexile Measure와 Reading Recovery Level에 기초한 학년별 리딩 단계를 제안하여, 학생들이 자신의 수준에 맞는 책을 추천 받고 이를 읽고 학습하는 과정을 통해 자신의 언어로, 자신의 지식으로 소화할 수 있도록 구성하였습니다.
가치 있는 영어 교육을 실현하기 위한 끊임 없는 노력의 결실입니다.
영어 원서를 다독하거나 정독하면서 영어의 기본기를 쌓는 것과 동시에 영어 활용 능력의 바탕을 만드는 것에 관심을 기울여야 한다는 믿음이 캥거루 리딩의 출발점이 되었습니다. 지금까지의 영어 교재 발굴 및 온라인 학습 툴 개발의 노하우를 캥거루 리딩 런칭에 쏟아 부었습니다. 그 결과 자신 있게 소개할 수 있는 온라인 라이브러리를 시작할 수 있었습니다.
영어의 기본기 = 리터러시 스킬 빌딩
영어의 기본기를 만든다는 것은 다섯 가지 초기 리딩 스킬을 다져나감을 의미합니다. 학생들이 영어를 읽고 쓸 수 있게 되기 위해서는 다음의 다섯 가지 스킬이 갖춰져야 한다고 전문가들이 이야기 합니다.
1) phonemic awareness 음소 인식 능력: 각각의 소리(음소)를 듣고, 구분하고 활용할 수 있는 능력
2) phonics 파닉스: 글의 형태로 된 문자와 말의 형태로 된 소리를 연결지을 수 있는 능력
3) vocabulary 어휘 활용 능력: 효과적인 의사소통을 위해 적절한 단어를 알고 사용할 수 있는 능력
4) reading comprehension 읽고 이해하는 능력: 읽은 것을 이해하고 그 의미를 파악할 수 있는 능력
5) fluency (oral reading) 유창하게 읽는 능력: 본문을 정확하게 적절한 속도로 읽을 수 있는 능력
이 다섯 가지 스킬은 ‘learn to read’ , 즉 읽는 법을 배워야 하는 시기에 반드시 훈련되어야 하는 것으로, 이 바탕이 균형 있게 갖춰질 때 비로소 ‘read to learn’ , 배우기 위한 자발적인 독서 시기로 자연스럽게 들어갈 수 있는 것입니다.
캥거루리딩은 영어 학습의 초기 단계에 있는 초등학생들을 대상으로 영어로 읽는 법을 가르쳐 나가면서, 스스로 자발적인 독서자가 될 수 있을 때까지 체계적인 독서 프로그램과 영어 학습법으로 서포트 해나갈 것입니다. 학생들은 캥거루 리딩에서 제시하는 책들과 영어 훈련 요소들을 꾸준히 읽고 접하면서 영어의 기본기를 차근히 쌓아나가게 될 것입니다.
