Citroen 2Cv

Citroen 2Cv CARLOW, Ed

This book is designed to support poor readers by giving them overtly adult material but where the language has been calculated using a reading age scale on a computer program. The 2CV was conceieved by Citroen vice President Pierre Boulanger to aid French farmers. The design brief was that it should carry farmers and eggs across a field without breaking the eggs. As late as the 1930's many farmers were still using horse and cart. The car was a combination of engineering innovation and utitlitarian bodywork. Originally the bodywork was corrugated for extra strength without extra weight. It was a definite marker in the history of automotive engineering. In 1953 Autocar magazine called it the most orginal car since the Model T Ford. That is how revolutionary this car was in its day. Manufacturing began in 1948 and only ceased in 1990. Read about the post war developments and the James Bond link and the cult that followed the 2CV. The material in this book should be accessible to an year 8 student and as such should be ideal reading material for the vast majority of students in schools and F.E. colleges. This book is in a series on old technology and is specifically designed to develop reading in teenage males. We were asked by a Midlands College to provide something that encouraged young males to read, since they were literally not reading anything. Since many of them will be weak readers, the book also comes with an audio recording on a disc. The student can then, if they need to, listen to the audio as they read. This will be of interest to schools, colleges and academies where there are reluctant readers.

Levertijd: 4 tot 10 werkdagen.
