The REWARDS family of reading and writing intervention materials are specifically designed for adolescent struggling learners in grades 4–12, with every instructional activity backed by sound research foundation and evidence
to support its effectiveness.
Significant gains made across reading levels post-tests indicated that after treatment and maintenance of REWARDS, students in both high- and low-mastery groups made significant gains in word and text reading skills and in oral reading fluency
as long as mastery-level criteria were maintained at 80 percent and regardless of whether they practiced with passages or sentences.
We are committed to a long-term partnership with every district that implements our solutions. Each implementation support plan is individually crafted with school and/or district administrators to meet specific needs, including making explicit connections
to state standards and/or the CCSS. Districts can choose from a menu of training and support options including in-person, online, or a combination of both.
