    Foundations of Reading

     

    This is research-based developmental reading program for adolescents who read below their grade level. The curriculum is rooted in Jeanne Chall's Stages of Reading Development. It was developed at the Girls and Boys Town Reading Center in Nebraska. The class uses an analytical approach to teaching phonics. It promotes application of phonics in word recognition and oral reading. We emphasize accuracy in all reading activities. The 6 syllable types are taught and practiced. We employ collaborative learning techniques and incorporate challenging material.
