As Middle School teachers you know that
your students need to develop their reading skills to
succeed in Middle School level work. Often Middle School
students who have struggled with reading do not get the
help they need for a variety of reasons: Middle School

resources to provide the instruction. Plus, there are

help in all these areas. Whether your school has a
remedial program or not, Keys to Reading Success™
