difference: Direct, systematic, explicit, and multisensory instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics. We help teachers teach the best practices supported by evidence with preventative programs for all, smallgroup instruction for some, and intensive intervention for the few who need it. In just 15–20 minutes a day, deliver research-based, scientifically aligned instruction.

INSTRUCTION PREVENTION: Build strong decoders and bring the “science of reading” to life in the classroom with fun, daily instruction and practice. PAGES 3–11 INTERVENTION: Use any of our programs with small groups to fill in gaps and provide a solid foundation for academic success. Many of our intervention programs are specifically designed for students in older grades. PAGES 3–15

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We’re having fantastic results! The vast majority of our kids are reading with at least 97% accuracy!” STACEY B., CONTENT LEADER

Our activity-driven, hands-on professional development prepares teachers to teach the foundational literacy skills that lead to strong decoding. We offer virtual visits, webinars, and workshops nationwide. PAGE 18

academic area, diagnosis is critical. Our diagnostic assessments help answer these key questions: • Which students are struggling with decoding? • What types of words are they struggling with? • What is the source of the underlying confusion? • Who can be grouped together for instruction? • What type of instruction will yield the greatest results?

Diagnostic Decoding Assessments Really Great Reading offers a family of complimentary diagnostic decoding assessments to help educators understand how well their students are decoding. In just 3 to 5 minutes, it’s easy to determine whether decoding deficits are hindering a student’s ability to understand what they are reading. Our complimentary diagnostic assessments contain everything you’ll need for initial assessment of an unlimited number of students. Each assessment packet provides an explanation of how the survey results can be used to group students and how to use data to plan effective and efficient instruction.

GROUPING

Complimentary!

Grouping Matrix™ This complimentary, web-based program enables you to group students according to the type and depth of their decoding difficulties. The Grouping Matrix also provides instructional recommendations for each group of students and allows you to track both individual and group progress. (Refer to chart on the right for grouping categories.) The Grouping Matrix uses data from gradelevel Oral Reading Fluency passages (such as DIBELS, AIMSWeb, Six Minute Solutions, Read Naturally, EasyCBM), the Kindergarten and 1st Grade Foundational Skills Surveys, and the Diagnostic Decoding Surveys.
