A comprehensive K–5 reading program, Being a Reader is the first of its kind to integrate foundational skills instruction, practice in reading comprehension strategies, and rich literacy experiences with explicit social skills instruction and activities that foster students’ growth as responsible, caring, and collaborative people. The scientific research on reading and child development is clear: foundational skills and meaning making go hand-in-hand, and children learn and grow best in a supportive reading community where they feel safe to learn and share. Being a Reader helps teachers create an environment where all students can develop into eager, confident readers, independent learners, and caring members of the classroom community.
Being a Reader can be used on its own or together with Being a Writer to form Collaborative Literacy, a comprehensive K–5 English Language Arts curriculum.
