Corrective Reading provides intensive and accelerated reading intervention. The Direct Instruction program delivers tightly sequenced, carefully planned lessons that give struggling students the structure and practice necessary to become skilled, fluent readers and empowered learners. Four levels for decoding plus four for comprehension address the varied reading deficits and skill levels found among older students.
Each level of SRA’s Corrective Reading Decoding program has features that have been demonstrated through research studies to be effective in improving student performance.
The Decoding strand directly addresses all critical reading components including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Note that vocabulary and comprehension are addressed more thoroughly by the companion Corrective Reading Comprehension strand.
Decoding A addresses non-readers by teaching sound-spelling relationships. Students quickly develop reading strategies for sounding out words and applying those strategies in context.
