Reading Triumphs, Macmillan/McGraw-Hill's Research-Based K-6 Intervention Program, Brings Struggling Readers Up to Grade Level
NEW YORK, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- According to the U.S. Department of Education, more than 8 million students are struggling readers performing below grade level. As a result, school districts are looking for effective ways to meet the needs of these students. Many of these districts are turning to solutions provided by Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, publisher of Reading Triumphs, a research-based intervention program designed for K-6 students reading two or more years below grade level. Reading Triumphs provides explicit instruction for tested skills to ensure reading mastery. Because struggling readers face different challenges and gaps in knowledge, Reading Triumphs offers targeted resources so teachers have what they need when they need it. The program builds a strong foundation with carefully sequenced, highly scaffolded lessons that model each skill in an "I do, we do, you do" structure. A teacher will model the skill ("I do"), then lead the students in guided practice ("we do"), and finally the students apply the skill on their own ("you do"). In addition, struggling readers are given multiple opportunities to master and retain words. High-frequency words are introduced using the Read/Spell/Write technique, creating a stronger mental model of the word. After the word is introduced, it appears at least 40-50 times in context within the upcoming weeks. "Reading Triumphs uses a sound instructional philosophy that has been proven to work with struggling readers," said Steve McClung, president of McGraw-Hill School Solutions Group, which includes Macmillan/McGraw-Hill. "Reading Triumphs not only provides teachers the tools to teach students to read, it helps students learn to enjoy reading. All of the materials are sensitive to students' age and interest levels. The content and design of the materials help engage and motivate young learners." Reading Triumphs meets the requirements of the Response to Intervention (RtI) model and can be incorporated into any curriculum during the school day, after school or during summer school. Data Driven Instruction Ongoing assessments are critical for effective reading intervention. The informal and formal assessments in Reading Triumphs match instruction to students' needs and monitor their growth. Assessments are easy for teachers to use and provide a pathway for students to exit the program and enter the regular classroom full time. Quick Checks allow a teacher to monitor each student's progress daily. If a student has difficulty grasping a concept, Corrective Feedback provides at- the-moment lesson modifications. Additional Instruction Lessons in the Teacher's Edition provide more instruction and guided practice.
