Read to Achieve

English Language Arts

The North Carolina Read to Achieve program is a part of the Excellent Public Schools Act which became law in July 2012, and it applies to all public schools in North Carolina.

What does the law mean?

“The goal of the State is to ensure that every student read at or above grade level by the end of third grade and continue to progress in reading proficiency so that he or she can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success.”

Guided Reading

Teachers meet with small groups of 3-6 students at their instructional reading level. Best practices from Jan Richardson and other experts are utilized during this time. Teachers may use literacy workstations or the Daily 5 approach to actively engage students who are not in a guided reading group.

Independent Reading

Students read daily at their independent level.  They may respond to their reading in writing.  Teachers take time to conference with students about their independent reading at least monthly.
