Xtreme Reading is a nationally recognized (the Institute of Educational Sciences) intervention program that works. During this year-long reading class, your students learn eight Strategic Instruction Model Strategies designed to increase vocabulary development and reading comprehension, and learn additional explicit strategies for classroom behavior, motivation, and goal-setting. As an instructor, you're provided with all of the curriculum materials needed to teach a reading intervention class including: detailed daily lesson plans, course organizers, and unit organizers. The IES data indicated students enrolled in Xtreme Reading intervention classes demonstrated a growth of 3-4 grade levels in reading after only a year of instruction!
This summer we're offering an initial two-day workshop where you'll receive instruction in Classroom Management, Achieve/Champs, Possible Selves, Motivation and Team-building strategies, as well as two valuable vocabulary structures. You'll also have paid seats in two of our Ecampus reading workshops (Paraphrasing and Self-Questioning Strategies) which are a part of the larger Xtreme Reading Program. The cost of the Xtreme Reading program is a one time, all inclusive payment, and includes all of the curriculum materials from the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning, 5 days of SIM Professional Development at Region 13, two days of on-site Xtreme Instructional coaching, and a minimum of six distance learning opportunities.
