Programs To Improve Reading Comprehension
Not all reading comprehension programs are created equal. Many companies have a series of reading activities that look like a program but aren’t. We call our reading comprehension program “Strategic Reading” because we teach students carefully crafted reading strategies that are suitable for each child. Our advanced technology enables us to create appropriate reading strategies for each student.
Strategic Reading is driven by SuccessMaker, assessment-based software that adapts to each student’s baseline level and then brings the student closer to his or her (or your) objective. Said differently, SuccessMaker meets your child at his or her own reading level and moves her or him to higher levels as quickly as possible. SuccessMaker, originally developed at Stanford University, adjusts to each student’s individual needs, ensuring grade level improvement in a relatively short period of time. And we’re talking about real improvements, not ones that are manufactured by flawed assessments!
Our friendly, experienced teachers are highly trained to work with SuccessMaker so you’re getting the best of both worlds. Your children will experience notable reading comprehension improvement, with verifiable results and, more importantly, real growth in confidence, self-esteem, and school performance. We’re developing young, active readers who learn to consciously read books. Moreover, we will include each student’s unique learning style in the instruction so all Lafayette Academy readers play to their strengths.
Lafayette Academy’s mission is to help students become “strategic readers,” so they can comprehend increasingly complex texts. Our students will experience less stress and more success throughout their academic careers. Reading Comprehension matters!
Strategic Reading Comprehension Program Structure
- Students begin with comprehensive assessments that are correlated with Statewide Standards and Benchmarks.
- We then create a personalized learning program for each student.
- We meet with students 2-5x a week in one-on-one or small group sessions.
- Our tutors also help students with any challenges they are having with their current schoolwork. (except during the summer)
- We provide progress assessments every 3 weeks to ensure that we are making real progress (on top of what you will see in school).
