The online computer reading program used at Highlands Middle School, Reading Plus, assesses reading rate, comprehension and vocabulary to create an appropriate intervention track for each student. Computer adaptive intervention provides instruction targeted to individual needs and ability. Performance goals are established and modified based on achievement. Supplemental instruction can also be printed off and be used with small group or one on one instruction to support weak skills.
This program can be accessed at school and at home. Students and I have access to immediate progress reports that detail weak skills for additional work so we can make informed instructional decisions. Our goal in the class is to bring students up to grade level as this will empower them for life and allow for more choices in their future.
