Right to Read is an after-school literacy program for students in Grades 2 – 6. It is designed to support the development of reading comprehension and critical literacy skills through shared and independent reading, read aloud, small group instruction, inquiry and accountable talk strategies. Students will learn and practice applying these skills in small groups with direct support from trained instructors.
Sessions consist of two 90-minutes classes per week for seven weeks. Schools have the option to participate and may target particular grade ranges. Schools may choose one of the following sessions:
Session 1: January 15 – March 1, 2018
Session 2: March 26 – May 10, 2018
Students selected to participate in the Right to Read program will receive a registration package that includes a parent letter and consent form. From 2016 – 2017, over 500 students have participated in the program across the board.
