Elementary Literacy members: ND Reading Corps members work one-on-one with Kindergarten through 3rd-grade students that fall just below the proficient reading line for their grade level. Members meet with each of their students for 20 minutes each day, five days a week in a pull-out format during the school day. Members use research-based scripted practices (referred to as literacy interventions) to practice reading and teach them strategies to become better readers. On average, students receive service for about 13 weeks or until they reach grade level proficiency and exit the program. Members progress monitor their students and chart it. Once a student exits the program, a new student is added to their caseload.
Preschool members: ND Reading Corps members are embedded in a preschool classroom setting during the day. The member will work as part of the classroom to deliver literacy strategies within the classroom instruction that all the children in the class receive. Member will also progress monitor all students in their class throughout the year.
