Each student is unique; therefore we have a thoroughly-designed yet flexible class protocol to follow. Building a habit requires a lot of monitoring, encouragement and self- discipline, and this is how we are confident about guiding students to become habitual readers. Below is the program structure to suit different ages, goals & levels.
1. First Trial Reading & Analysis
A 75-min trial reading class is like a chemistry meeting between the Reading Specialist & the Student. We need to ensure Students are happy and are willing to pursue a reading habit development course before we accept them. It is their passion to read and their motivation to become an avid reader that matters.
The First Trial Reading Class will include:-
- Questionnaire to Students about their current reading habit
- Questionnaire to Parents about the resources and time they can assist Students in reading at home
- 20-min read-aloud by Reading Specialist & Students to evaluate reading style, comprehension and interest
- 15-min writing analysis (typing skill checking for older student)
- Review on Student’s bookshelves and current reading materials
- Goals setting for both Student & Parents
A Trial-Read Report will be provided with our evaluation on Students’ reading level & interests, strengths & areas for improvement, and suggestions on how to set goals.
