Life-Changing Progress

Lindie Roden, M.Ed., Ed.S., Chattanooga, TN: A student was enrolled in our 6th grade in November.  He could barely read on an "E" level. I have been fortunate to work with him during his language arts class small group time almost daily. As of April 29, he was reading on a "P" level. What amazing progress in 6 months!  I really believe that his life has been changed because he is now able to read.

Also, during the last few years I have had students enroll in our middle school reading between level "C" and "H."  Several of these students are now making As and Bs in high school, and the ones who are still here with us in 7th and 8th grade, are reading close to or on grade level. Guided Reading has truly been life changing for these students.  They are now able to actually be successful in school & life.
