Product Description

Program Goals
Reading Dailies builds students’ reading skills by breaking down complex reading into small,
more manageable tasks. The program is supplemental and is designed to complement other
instruction within the daily reading block. The program fits alongside use of a basal text or a
series of novels, either reinforcing or adding key skill instruction, thus enabling students to
become independent readers.

Program Benefits
Reading Dailies will enrich instruction in any classroom by
• teaching the key skills needed to succeed on national exams
• incorporating daily reading of quality literature and daily close reading of it through
writing and discussion
• focusing on specific aspects of reading literature and reading informational texts
• enabling students regular opportunities to read and discuss quality, authentic texts
• working seamlessly in all classroom environments through its compatible print and
digital options
• providing an easy-to-use digital tool to help assess students’ mastery of the skills that
teachers need to teach

More Information

The Reading Dailies program has a variety of components that make it thorough yet versatile for any classroom environment. Each of the 19 units can be easily opened as a PDF or HTML lesson for online or offline use. Each unit in the Reading Dailies program has 3, 4, or 5 individual lessons that are designed to be completed in a single week. Each unit starts by introducing the main strategy and the key skills embedded within it. Each lesson within a unit is designed to take about one day and requires students to read and reread a passage and write about it. By breaking a larger standard down into smaller skills, students can master them one at a time to build understanding. A Checkpoint Assessment assesses students’ understanding of the main strategy at the end of each week, giving teachers the summative data needed to assess whether students have mastered the skills.
