Help Struggling Middle School Students Become Competent Readers in Months

Accelerate Content Area Reading And Help Students Prepare for High School

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 teachers have not been trained to be reading teachers. There is little or no information about the specific reading skills the student has missed. If teachers know what reading skills a student needs, they don’t have the resources to provide the instruction. Plus, there are few practical resources available to help content area teachers integrate reading into their content. Now, the breakthrough Keys to Reading Success™ Program can help in all these areas. Whether your school has a remedial program or not, Keys to Reading Success™ will provide every teacher with the tools and resources they need to help all their students – even those who have struggled with reading for years. Read on to find out how Keys to Reading Success™ can help you.

Even students who are fluent readers need to prepare for state level assessments and more rigorous High School reading assignments. How can Middle School teachers teach their content and at the same time help students improve in the reading skills needed to succeed on state and national assessments?

Keys to Reading Success™ can help Middle School students become competent readers – whether they are struggling readers achieving years below their grade level, or they are trying to improve their scores on state assessments.
