Reading Skills Programs

Our Summer Reading Skills Programs are offered by the School of Professional & Continuing Studies, designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development. These single-grade programs teach key reading skills, from phonics and sight words for younger children to comprehension, reading speed, and textbook strategies for older kids, and everything in between.
