Welcome to Read to Grow! This class is part of a district-wide intervention program from Curriculum Associates titled i-Ready® Diagnostic & Instruction. The i-Ready® program is research-based, and uses a blended learning model to enrich students academically. In the area of reading, students are assessed and instructed in the following domains:
- Phonemic Awareness
- High-Frequency Words
A student begins by taking a computerized diagnostic test that adapts to his or her specific responses and reading abilities. Once completed, a computerized on-line lesson plan is created. The teacher has immediate access to the student's instructional levels within each reading domain. Students can then be grouped for leveled instruction presented in small groups, or work independently on the computer. This is why the program is considered a "blended learning model."
Students attend in groups of 5-7 and work for approximately 40 minutes, four days a week. The on-line lessons can also be completed from home or on any computer with access to the internet.
Students are chosen to attend this class based on multiple testing data points and overall instructional need.
