The Insight will measure three dimensions essential to successful independent silent reading: capacity, efficiency and motivation. You will learn your child's grade level in reading comprehension, silent fluency and vocabulary. We view the results as a baseline or starting place, recognizing that test scores represent only one aspect of becoming a stronger reader. We guarantee with the right practice and coaching from us your child will read faster with more understanding.
We partner with a leading online reading program,Reading Plus, to provide students in grade 3 and up with a variety of fun and engaging activities. To overcome obstacles like lack of motivation and the fear of failure and prepare them to meet the demands of high school and college, we work to change how students read, why students read and what students are capable of reading. The evidenced based exercises in Reading Plus scaffold comprehension tasks while igniting curiosity and making reading more efficient (faster) and enjoyable.
We will use the results from the Insight as well as parent input to craft an individualized instructional path for each student. This will show you the specific steps to get your child reading more confidently at grade level. You will learn the exact amount of time and effort needed to achieve accelerated reading growth.
Once enrolled in our online "Reading Gym", you will receive access to a series of Coach's Messages from our instructional leader, Coach T. One of our reading experts will give your child private and constructive feedback every week based on his or her performance. We get to know each one of our students and give them just the right amount of challenge and encouragement. Our long term goal is for students to have the ability and skills to coach themselves to read any text in any class.
Just like practicing a sport, we encourage our students to practice 3-4 times a week. The combination of our interactive videos, coaching feedback and state of the art reading software, keeps the lessons fresh and engaging. BOSS is not tutoring or a traditional online class. As the program progresses, we coach kids on specific techniques to stay motivated. Students learn to own their practice and own their life.
We send parents reports that show where students are on the path to accelerated growth. You won't be left wondering, "Is this working?" . Parents also get instant online access to all of the valuable data generated by Reading Plus and can check on their child's progress at any time.
Coach T shares the secrets of top performers and skill development. These short, powerful messages are delivered each week. Think P90x for Reading. Students adopt the best practice ideas from top athletes and coaches.
The online program we partner with has spent decades researching and developing exercises to increase a student's reading capacity, efficiency and stamina. We think it does the best job giving kids choice with a challenge, differentiating to each individual student's level and giving kids actionable data as they move through the program.
After completing the first week of lessons online, we will send you materials to support completing the rest of the course. This includes, parent reading coach tips for success, a personal training journal and a mechanical pencil. Most lessons students we ask students to reflect about their reading practice, record their bright spots and track their progress in their journal.
