Corrective Reading is a literacy program designed to improve decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills for students in third grade or higher who are reading below their grade level. Corrective Reading can be implemented in small groups for 45-minutes four to five times a week. Assessments determine the level at which each student is initially placed. Students are expected to complete all lessons within a level before advancing to the next level. All lessons involve a scripted, direct instructional approach to implement the series of targeted exercises. The decoding component has four levels containing between 65 and 125 lessons each. The comprehension component consists of four levels with between 65 and 140 lessons.
