Helping all elementary students become successful readers is a significant challenge. Every student needs the same foundational reading skills, but each student is unique and differs in age, maturity, and skill development.
An effective reading system can’t simply be aligned to standards. An effective reading system needs to provide you a simple and sustainable way to reach your diverse population of students. Approximately 70% of elementary students will learn to read regardless of the method with which they are taught. But you want to reach more than just 70% of your students. You want to reach 100% of your students.
So, what kind of instruction will work for every student? A research-based approach to reading instruction that is explicit, systematic, and multi-sensory in nature is essential for the 30% of students that struggle with typical instruction and is beneficial for the 70% of students that will learn to read regardless of the approach.
Reading Horizons Discovery leverages the power of this research-based approach in a way that is practical for teachers to teach and simple for students to learn. By providing teacher training, scripted direct instruction materials, and interactive software that adjusts to the needs and skill level of each student, the system can easily be adapted to meet the needs of your diverse student population.
By learning the Reading Horizons methodology, every student is armed with strategies that prepare him or her for future success in reading and education.
The Reading Horizons Discovery direct instruction materials engage students in high-engagement reading instruction that helps them master the basics of the English language.
The Reading Horizons Discovery interactive software program allows students to work at their own pace and receive highly-differentiated reading instruction while learning skills that drastically decrease reading, spelling, and pronunciation errors.
