The Current State of Literacy...
With over 60% of 4th graders in the United States failing to read proficiently, something needs to change. The National Reading Panel synthesized the reading research over two decades ago. Their findings revealed that the most effective reading instruction includes:
In light of this, many schools have provided professional development focusing on comprehension. However, phonemic awareness and systematic phonics have been largely ignored by many universities and school districts. That's why despite the millions of dollars spent on literacy, many kids are still failing to meet grade level expectations.
Some states have finally done something about this crisis. Several states are now requiring that teachers receive training in the science of reading (otherwise known as Structured Literacy™), an instructional approach supported by research. Considering the current challenges facing us, how will schools meet the demand for teacher training with limited budgets and time constraints?
"I loved the R.E.A.D. Intervention modules!!! The modules are very easy to navigate and I liked the online format. I could easily start and stop the modules when needed. The PDF materials will be very helpful to support my teaching. I thought the demonstration videos were fantastic and Jennifer presented in a very clear and well organized way. She really helped me understand the best ways to support students as they learn foundational skills to become successful readers. With the knowledge shared in the modules, I feel I am ready to use the suggested lesson outlines, teaching strategies and assessments to teach my students with the OG based approach. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to improve their teaching practices, to help support the students they serve."
