Since the writing of your Rainbow Reading Teacher’s Manual, CDs have superseded audio tapes and CDs themselves have been superseded by mp3 players, and now we have the Rainbow Reading pen!
As no one can predict what the future will bring and in the interest of saving you the cost of an updated manual, wherever tapes are mentioned in your manual, please replace with CD, mp3 player, reading pen or supersonic audio transducer, as appropriate.
Please be assured it is the audio “component” (in whatever format) providing the support and model to the student, that is critical to the progress that the students make.
