Notes: The following examples are short stories and lists used in our initial trial with adult learners (ages 25 to 62 who read below 6th grade levels). They have inconsistencies in how we they are Pcued in part because of our experiments with the students and in part due to remaining short comings in the Pcue automation technology. Blends and combined letters are particularly inconsistent as the tool allows us to enable and disable different combinations at different stages of student progress. Due to tech issues in rendering adjacent combined/blended letter Pcues (soon to be corrected), we are inserting segment cues where they shouldn’t be (th-ing). The gray color used for silent letters and to indicate combined letters may be hard to read on monitors. It was chosen to look best when printed on the trial site’s printer.
