The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, ensures that all children have significant opportunities to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on rigorous academic achievement standards.  One way that this can be accomplished is by “significantly elevating the quality of instruction by providing staff in participating schools with substantial opportunities for professional development.” (March 2008, Title I Handbook, Thompson Media)

Title I schools provide reading intervention instruction for eligible students. Students that score significantly below their grade level peers may be referred by their classroom teacher for diagnostic assessment and possible inclusion in Title I intervention programs.

Eligible students receive supplementary intervention instruction in addition to the general classroom core reading curriculum. The supplementary instruction is based on student need with targeted instructional strategies and skills. The goal is to accelerate reading growth and improve students reading achievement.

What is reading intervention instruction?
Intervention instruction is provided to students who are lagging behind their classmates in the development of critical reading skills. This instruction will usually be guided by a specific intervention program that focuses on one or more of the key areas of reading development. This type of instruction is needed by only a small minority of students in a classroom.

Intervention instruction is designed to meet a student’s specific learning needs while at the same time accelerating their growth toward grade level reading proficiency. Reading intervention instruction is supplemental instruction and is delivered in addition to grade level core reading instruction.

    What intervention programs are available for struggling readers?
    Individual Title I schools build site-based programs to address the needs of their student population. A variety of reading intervention programs are implemented.  They may include:

    • Waterford
    • SuccessMaker
    • Imagine Learning
    • Fundations Tier 2
    • Macmillan McGraw-Hill Reading Triumphs
    • Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Strategic Intervention
    • Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Intervention Station
