Grade-Level Reading

Reading proficiency at the end of 3rd grade is a critical benchmark in a scholar’s education and a powerful predictor for lifelong achievement. That is when scholars are expected to shift from learning to read, to reading to learn. 

To help scholars master their reading skills and develop a love of learning, we designed an intensive summer learning model: READy Scholars. It starts with a staff of outstanding educators, including teachers, reading specialists and coaches, and teaching assistants. Educators trained in BELL are equipped with Common Core-aligned curricula and best practices for reading development and early literacy, as well as adaptive assessments to help drive instruction. 

These resources, combined with instructional flexibility and a a powerful set of data reporting tools, enable educators adapt and adjust instruction to the skills and standards scholars did not master during the school year. To further support differentiated instruction, READy Scholars incorporates a range of interactive learning technologies.
