Implementing the Reading Simplified Academy in Your School/District

Streamline Reading Instruction While Accelerating Your Readers’ Achievement​

Inside the Reading Simplified Academy, teachers discover an evidence-based and comprehensive 3-part model for small group guided reading time (Re-Reading for Fluency, Word Work, and Guided Reading) that is easy to differentiate for a variety of learners. Just 3-4 Word Work activities serve as one critical component of this lesson model to help transform both struggling and beginning students into readers. Using the Reading Simplified Streamlined Pathway (a 1-page scope and sequence), teachers learn an efficient model for reading development that allows for effective collaboration across departments and grades.

    Planning Your Reading Simplified Academy Implementation

    How will your school / district provide time for teachers to participate in the Main Course and Community of Practice planning?

    How will each Administrator and Champion lead teachers as they move through the Main Course and implement the Reading Simplified system?
