Reading on the Move

Reading on the Move is a series of stand-alone lessons, written at a 3rd – 5th grade reading level, geared toward out-of-school youth (adult oriented) to introduce or strengthen basic reading skills. Activities throughout the lessons emphasize proven, research-based, teaching strategies, including active student involvement, consideration of the student’s background, establishment of a relationship between the author and the student, linkage of reading and writing skills, and presentation of vocabulary in context. Also included in the lessons are basic study skills and practice using reference materials. An assessment, which may be used to measure student mastery of the content, is provided for each lesson.
