for Reading Success
Powerful Vocaculary for Reading Sucess is the FIRST vocabulary program to offer a systematic,
teacher-directed approach to improving students’ reading achievement in just fifteen minutes a
day. It has long been established that vocabulary knowledge is critical to successful reading
comprehension. Today, we have research-based data on how best to provide students with effective
vocabulary instruction. First, students need to be taught specific word-learning strategies through teacher
modeling and repeated practice. Second, they need to learn high-utility vocabulary words through
engaging tasks, repetition, and multiple exposures. Finally, students need to be presented with a variety of
multimodal vocabulary-building activities. Powerful Vocabulary for Reading Success provides students
with all of these critical components.
This strategy-intensive program ensures that all students receive the instruction they need to not only
learn words found in the program but also words they encounter in their reading of literature and in all
content areas. It prepares students for high-stakes tests through the study of academic vocabulary that is
highly correlated to state and national tests and through practice with test-like assessments. This powerful
combination of strategy, targeted word-learning, and assessment practice provides students with the tools
they need for improved reading achievement.
For teachers, Powerful Vocabulary for Reading Success offers research-based instructional resources that
require minimal prep time. Teachers also benefit from the program’s flexible instructional model, which
allows them to customize instruction to fit their classroom schedules and meet individual student needs.
With Powerful Vocabulary for Reading Success, teachers are finally able to implement proven strategies to
promote vocabulary knowledge with ease. We hope you join us in our journey to improve...
