Synopsis

Two Girls and Their Dreams Level 2 Reader by Rachel Carnegie

While full of exciting adventure, these stories reveal the problems and discrimination faced by many girls. The stories show what girls can achieve if they are given the same opportunities and treatment as their brothers. The characters in these readers provide positive role models for both girls and boys, developing their confidence and self-esteem and demonstrating the importance of life skills, such as communication and critical thinking. A central theme for the series is the value of girls' education. Two Girls and their Dreams is a Level 2 reader. In this story two cousins, Tisa and Nina, both have unconventional aspirations for their future. Through various dramatic events, the girls manage to convince their families that they can achieve their dreams. The story illustrates how education widens the options for women's roles. The story also talks about caring for people living with AIDS. The Girl Child series can make a useful contribution to educational initiatives seeking to promote girls' performance and retention in school. They can also be used as support material for life skills programmes, in and out of school. The books are graded at two levels, intended for upper primary and lower secondary classes. The readers can be used as an integral part of a Social Studies or Environmental Science curriculum. They can also be used in Language and Literacy classes
