EARLY LITERACY MODEL (GRADES K-3)
The early literacy model provides children in the primary grades reading and language instruction that sets the stage for students to be successful in a wide range of academic and personal activities. Language and conceptual skills are fundamental to this model as a precursor to reading success. Instructional programs include Reading Mastery, Language for Learning, Language for Thinking, and Reasoning and Writing. The goal of the model is to accelerate student learning by one full grade level ahead of the national average by the third grade for continuing students.
ELEMENTARY REMEDIAL LITERACY MODEL (GRADES 4-5)
Designed for students in the upper elementary grades, the elementary remedial literacy model improves the reading skills of students who have demonstrated needs in writing and decoding or comprehending written texts. Programs include Corrective Reading Decoding and Comprehension tracks, Expressive Writing, Reading Mastery, and Reasoning and Writing. The goal of the model is to increase student confidence in reading and writing and provide students with fundamental skills that will allow them to function in middle school content courses.
FULL IMMERSION MODEL (GRADES K-5)
The full immersion model extends the early literacy model to all grades in elementary schools and includes spelling and mathematics. The model builds on the conceptual and literacy success of the primary grades to foster academic acceleration in the intermediate grades. Programs include Reading Mastery, Reasoning and Writing, Expressive Writing, Spelling Mastery, and Connecting Math Concepts. The goal of the model is to accelerate student learning one and a half grade levels ahead of the national average by the sixth grade for students who begin the program in Kindergarten.
MIDDLE SCHOOL REMEDIAL LITERACY AND NUMERACY MODELS (GRADES 6-8)
The middle school remedial literacy model is designed for students in middle school who have demonstrated needs in decoding and comprehending written texts. Programs include Corrective Reading Decoding and Comprehension tracks, Expressive Writing, and Reasoning and Writing. The goal of the model is to increase student confidence in reading and writing and provide students with fundamental skills that will allow them to function in middle school content courses.
A numeracy version of the model addresses fundamental mathematics skills at the middle school level using Corrective Mathematics, a program available in seven separate modules that address specific mathematics deficits: Addition; Subtraction; Multiplication; Division; Basic Fractions; Fractions, Decimals and Percents; Ratios and Equations. Advanced students will receive instruction in Essentials for Algebra.
RESEARCH STUDY OPTION (ALL SUBJECTS & GRADES)
NIFDI has an on-going need to work with schools who are interested in participating in a research study. The cost of the implementation will be significantly discounted for this type of implementation. Please contact NIFDI if you are interested in learning more about our research option.
