Boost Foundational Reading Skills in Your Alabama School District

As an education leader in Alabama, you know how vital it is to help students achieve reading proficiency by the end of third grade. And the need goes beyond that with English language learner (ELL) instruction and reading intervention in grades four and above.

At Reading Horizons, we follow the science of reading to provide a foundational reading program that is simple for teachers, effective for students, and gives teachers the confidence to teach anyone to read.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Schedule a Call with your Alabama Reading Horizons representative.
  2. Get a personalized plan for your schools.
  3. Celebrate reading breakthroughs!

Translate teacher knowledge into classroom practice with a program that has followed the science of reading for nearly 40 years.

Case Study

Tyler Independent School District Research Study

This rigorous study compared impacts between students whose teachers implemented Reading Horizons Discovery® and those whose teachers did not implement the program during the 2021–2022 school year. Both implementation integrity and student outcomes were measured by the Reading Horizons Implementation Integrity Rubric and the DIBELS 8 assessment, respectively. Students receiving Reading Horizons Discovery® instruction demonstrated a positive effect size of .31, a substantively important positive effect, according to What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards.

With exposure to the Reading Horizons method, average student growth was more than double that of students without exposure.

The new innovative software feature for teachers takes out excuses. It provides immediate feedback from data to drive small-group instruction and differentiated materials to use within those groups. Those materials challenge the higher students while providing more explicit instruction for the students needing more support.

Foundational Literacy for Older Students: Catching Up. Keeping Up. Moving Ahead.

Nearly 66% of fourth- and eighth-grade learners perform below proficient achievement levels in reading. For students grades 4 and beyond who struggle with reading, the path ahead can be difficult and discouraging. For striving readers, newcomers, and students with special needs, we can do more and do it better. And that’s the focus of this edWebinar.

For many teachers, the science of reading feels overwhelming because it’s so… different. As you teach, it’s hard to know for sure if you’re getting it “right.”

You shouldn’t have to figure it out on your own. When you join The Science of Reading Collective, you won’t have to. It’s free to join!
