The Science of Reading Intervention Program: Language Comprehension
Many reading intervention teachers, who are faithfully implementing science of reading-based instruction for older students do a fine job of teaching the word recognition strand (phonemic awareness, spelling, phonics) of Dr. Hollis Scarborough's famous two-strand rope. However, some teachers say they are less equipped to teach the language comprehension strand of the rope.
The Science of Reading Intervention Program: Language Comprehension is the ideal second half of a Tier 2 or 3 reading intervention program or a key addition to ELL, SPED, and adult literacy classes.

"I just wanted to thank you for creating these explicit and extensive resources for students in need. Thank you! I am working with one class of ESL students and two classes of Read 180 students with behavior issues and have been struggling to find methods to address their specific areas of weakness. I am also teaching three senior level English classes and have found them to have serious deficits in many critical areas that may impact their success if they are attending college level courses in a year's time. I have been trying to find a way to help all of them in specific and measurable ways - and I found you!" Cathy Ford
