About the Workshop

This workshop addresses two important components identified by the National Reading Panel as needed for effective reading instruction – Reading Rate (Fluency) and Reading Comprehension. Workshop materials include manuals for Rite Flight: A Classroom Reading Rate Program and Rite Flight: A Classroom Comprehension Program, instant word cards, comprehension mystery cards and a classroom set of W-charts. These materials, developed at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, provide excellent supplements to a classroom or remedial reading curriculum. They are not intended to provide a comprehensive dyslexia intervention.

Increasing Reading Rate

Fluency instruction incorporates guided and timed repeated reading of decodable words, phrases and connected text. The instruction also includes the important elements of incentives, concrete measures of progress, and daily home practice.

The Comprehension Mystery

A combination of techniques for instruction in reading comprehension will be discussed and demonstrated including comprehension monitoring, question generation, story structure, summarizing, inferencing, and utilization of graphic and semantic organizers.

The workshop includes demonstrations of these techniques developed by Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children that specifically address both narrative and expository text. Preliminary effectiveness research results will be shared with the audience. Forms for ordering additional Rite Flight materials will be available at the seminar.
