Xtreme reading is a nationally recognized (by the Institute of Educational Sciences) intervention program that works. During the reading class, your students learn eight strategies designed to increase vocabulary development and reading comprehension. You'll also work on additional explicit strategies for classroom behavior, motivation, and goal-setting.
Instructors are provided with all 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!
The cost of the Xtreme Reading program includes all of the curriculum materials from the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning, four days of SIM Professional Development at Region 13, three days of on-site Xtreme instructional coaching, and a minimum of six distance learning opportunities including ZOOM meetings and webinars. This initial cost will be a one-time payment with only ongoing coaching and training for new teachers to be considered in consequent years.
You’ll get a minimum of six distance learning opportunities, to chat with our specialists about the problems you’re facing on campus and communicate about the help you need.
Throughout the year we’ll host 4 days of professional development where you can attend and get trained in SIM strategies to help your struggling readers.
We’ll send our specialists to your campus for some onsite coaching. You’ll work one-on-one with our specialists to help your readers out!
The Xtreme Reading program is a complete package, including all the materials, lesson plans, unit organizers, and more you’ll need to implement the program. All included in the cost of the contract.
