MYcroSchool Gainesville is introducing a new reading program in an effort to improve student learning.
The program blends the Great Leaps approach with classroom-based learning facilitated by a staff member. In addition, college students will be helping as reading tutors!
Great Leaps develops and increases student fluency in reading. Students increase on average 2 years in 1 year. The program is easy to integrate into the current school day.
Author and creator of the Great Leaps reading program, Kenneth Campbell (pictured at right), presented his program to MYcroSchool Gainesville staff.
All staff and reading tutors from the University of Florida will begin the program October 1st to reach as many students as possible.
