Foundations and Frameworks

Foundations and Frameworks is a uniquely designed, research-based instructional reading program that uses a collection of best instructional practices for equipping students to fully understand ideas conveyed in text. Thinking skills are explicitly taught and modeled. Because comprehension results from the thoughtful interaction between reader and text, improving student thinking positively impacts student comprehension.  Click here to read more about Foundations and Frameworks.

Reading Counts and Lexile Framework

Reading Counts is a reading motivation program created by Scholastic, one of the leading textbook publishers in the United States. Through this program, students choose and read approved books and then take a computer based comprehension test on the book. This test is used to determine if they understood and retained information about the book. If the student passes the test, then s/he earns the number of points that are associated with the book.
