Summer Reading Program / Study Skills
Eight one hour sessions
(Full battery of reading tests are available)
Many students struggle with reading and preparing for tests. This issue becomes a serious problem when students take standardized tests like the ACT, SAT, or High School Placement Exam because students are forced to read lengthy passages and answer difficult and often complex questions under severe time constraints. Our Summer Reading Program can help students with this problem.
The goals of the program are:
- Improve reading rate
- Develop critical thinking skills to be able to answer inference questions
- Comprehend interpretive material and gain confidence in reading
- Learn techniques for taking notes about the material being read so that preparing for exams becomes more efficient and effective.
- Improve Study and Organizational Skills
Students will have the opportunity to practice using novels and text books. If a student has a book to read for the next school year, we can incorporate it into the program to give the student a jump start on the new school year.
We also offer testing for reading deficits. This includes two full test batteries, full score report and interpretation of skills, and consultation regarding test results and plan to improve areas of reading.
