A Solution for Middle School Students

July 29, 2020

In reading education, researchers have come to know lots about teaching young children how to decipher words. The struggling adolescent reader, on the other hand, is still unconquered territory.

Here are a couple of new reports, however, that offer a sliver of hope. The first is a randomized experiment on a program called Read Right. Currently used in about 500 schools across the country, the model calls for students to be taught in separate classes during the school day with no more than five students per tutor.

Read Right is a highly structured reading tutoring intervention program designed to produce rapid reading improvement for children, teens, and adults regardless of labels that have been attached—RTI, Title I, English language learners, or special education (including dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, autistic, etc.).

Read Right relies on the plasticity of the brain to remodel the neural network that, in poor readers, guides the reading act inappropriately. Pre/Post evaluations with norm-referenced, standardized reading tests, District tests, State tests, and third-party gold-standard research all verify the effectiveness of Read Right. The gold-standard research has been reviewed and rated highly for quality and rigor by the National Center on Response to Intervention. Read Right methodology is unique because it rapidly advances virtually every student, regardless of his or her reading level or the “labeled” learning problem. Even non-readers of all ages have experienced rapid success in learning to read with Read Right methodology. Unlike most reading intervention programs, the older the Read Right student, the faster the growth.

California Homeschooling Today

When an individual learns to read, he builds a network in his brain to guide the doing of it. Reading problems are caused when the network is not built correctly: because the network has errors encoded in, it operates inappropriately when it is accessed to read.

The individual has to read the way the network is guiding the process; he cannot read in any other way. It follows that the only way to eliminate a reading problem is to compel the brain to re-model the network so it yields excellent reading every time it is accessed to make reading happen. Brains are “plastic,” but they are unlikely to accidently encounter an environment that would cause them to remodel existing circuitry. The tutoring environment must be precise to facilitate the remodeling work and ensure it will happen.
