Reading Reform Foundation teaching techniques produce vibrant classrooms and raised test scores.
Groundbreaking Education Program Established in 2014
Reading Reform Foundation of New York and Manhattanville College announce a new partnership in the establishment of the Rose Institute for Learning and Literacy.
Students are taught the written form of the sounds of English, which they then put into words. This makes English logical. As the students write the words, they learn the approximately two dozen spelling rules that govern English. The students also learn to examine words for their roots and meanings, allowing for more thoughtful reading and better comprehension.
When invited by school principals, Reading Reform Foundation's consultants come twice a week to the classrooms of teachers who have completed a course. The specific phonics-based approaches that employ multisensory techniques of teaching and learning can then be applied in a real-life setting.
Reading Reform Foundation of New York, a 34 year-old not-for-profit organization, was founded by a group of teachers to improve the teaching of reading, writing, spelling and comprehension. The Founders were convinced by their own experience that all children could learn to read if they were taught properly.
