Right to Read is offered after school, two days per week for seven weeks in many of our schools. It is designed for small groups of students in Grades 2-6 who would benefit from additional practice with higher level reading and thinking skills. Schools are able to target particular grade levels, depending on the needs of their students.
Through Read Alouds, Shared and Independent Reading, Small Group Instruction and Accountable Talk, students practice applying critical literacy skills with direct support from the tutor. The instructional strategies and learning opportunities are meant to enhance regular classroom programs.
Sessions consists of two 90-minute classes per week.
In the 2013-2014 school year, over 400 students participated in Right to Read programs at 40 sites across the board. In the 2014-2015 school year, participating schools may choose to offer the program in either January or March. For additional information regarding the Right to Read program, please contact your school's Administrative Team or the Student Support Teacher (SST).
