They say until third grade, kids learn to read; after third, they read to learn. Reading Results wants to make sure all kids in Portland are ready to learn. With the help of teachers, PRF identifies children in primary grades who are most at risk for failing to learn to read, and provides them with scientifically-based, multi-sensory instruction. Their students not only become great readers, they become great learners.
In 2008, PRF piloted a model for training and paying parent tutors to deliver the reading instruction in some classrooms. The model has not only proven effective for improving the children’s reading skill, it is also an effective education and job training activity for neighborhood moms.
