The Reid Foundation's Reading Clinic uses the Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI) teaching methods which, because of students’ significant achievement gains, have been nationally validated by divisions of the United States Department of Education. The ECRI program is also used at Reid School and at many other schools throughout the nation.
Reading, Spelling and Language Skills Development Program:
Students from kindergarten through 12th grade are tested prior to the beginning of summer school and placed in small groups of students based on their reading levels. The students are also tested at the end of the class and a report including pre- and posttest scores and activities completed are mailed to the parents.
Reading instruction in the lower reading levels emphasizes sound-symbol relationships and phonics; however, key vocabulary words, comprehension, study skills, and writing are taught in all groups—appropriate to the students’ reading levels. Penmanship, spelling, grammar, and proofing skills are also taught. References provided.
