Undergraduates from Texas A&M-San Antonio’s College of Education and Human Development study research-based literacy instruction theory and techniques and learn to apply those techniques as SAReads® Tutors. Kindergarten through 4th grade students receive weekly reading tutoring from SAReads® Tutors. Tutors use reading assessment data to prepare custom lesson plans based on the five components of reading.
Curriculum & Materials
SAReads® provides professional teaching materials and books for tutors to use during reading instruction sessions. Tutors instruct students to read based on the five components of reading instruction or the “scientific method of teaching reading.” Tutors supplement classroom literacy instruction using curriculum developed by the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR).
A Book for Every Child
Children enrolled in SAReads® tutoring receive new books for their home library. SAReads® also provides books to younger siblings so they can begin their reading journey prior to entering kindergarten.
