Reading Milestones Overview

Reading milestones is an alternative, language-controlled program designed to take readers to approximately a fifth-grade reading level.  Instruction is designed and constructed to begin with the siomplest language possible to ensure initial success in reading by increasing language acquistion (vocabulary, syntax, and figurative language, etc.).  Students work in very small steps, accompanied by constant reinforcement, to ensure continuing success.  A substantial number of tasks for providing more practice in some of the mechanical aspects of the reading process are incorporated into the course.  The development of comprehension is the heart of the course.  All tasks foster literal and inferential comprehension and the solving of problems through the use of a variety of prcedures.
