Reading Mastery Signature Edition uses the highly explicit, systematic approach of Direct Instruction to accelerate reading and help students achieve a high rate of success. Three strands address Reading, Language Arts, and Literature through a common instructional design that helps students learn more efficiently. With the addition of technology-based resources for both additional practice and professional development, Reading Mastery Signature Edition helps teachers optimize each minute spent in the classroom.

The Reading Strand:

  • Addresses all five essential components of reading as identified by Reading First—phonemic awareness, phonics and word analysis, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
  • Provides spelling instruction to help students make the connection between decoding and spelling patterns.
  • Develops decoding, word recognition, and comprehension skills that transfer to other subject areas.

The Language Arts Strand:

  • Teaches the oral language skills necessary to understand what is said, written, and read in the classroom.
  • Helps students communicate ideas and information effectively.
  • Develops the ability to use writing strategies and processes successfully.

The Literature Strand:

  • Supports the reading strand by offering a wide variety of literary forms and text structures.
  • Provides multiple opportunities for students to practice vocabulary and comprehension strategies and write for authentic purposes.
  • Gives ample opportunity for students to read at their independent level.

Each strand can be used as a supplement to the core curriculum for targeted intervention, or combined for use as a comprehensive, stand-alone reading and language arts program that meets rigorous state standards.
