Reading more brings stronger readers. I want to shout it from the rooftop.
This past week we completed our universal screening instrument for all our middle school students. It takes considerable time and dedication of personnel. But the results allow us a snapshot of how our students are progressing. It also helps us be proactive with students and make certain they are offered an intervention when their progress is not what we would like it to be.
The results have been very encouraging for our Reading Essentials Class students. The average gain for the Reading Essentials students was 2 - 3 times the average gain for each class.
I am so happy for our students. I had assured them that if they followed my suggestions, their reading levels would improve. And it did!!
Reading more brings stronger readers. I want to shout it from the rooftop and now I have the data from our school to prove it.
