In this semester long, 9-week small-group reading class, learners will be explicitly taught comprehension and fluency strategies and skills to help them grow as readers. They will also practice them in a supportive small-group setting.

Class Experience

US Grade 2 - 4
Follows Teacher-Created Curriculum
  • Learners will develop comprehension skills such as finding the main idea and details, summarizing information, retelling what happened, etc. Learners will become more fluent, accurate, and expressive readers. Learners will become more fluent in conversation and social skills such as active listening, affirming others’ statements, and offering their own insights. Learners will develop a more sophisticated reading and speaking vocabulary. Learners will gain confidence in public speaking and reading aloud. Learners will develop critical thinking skills by considering both open-ended and text-specific questions.
