About the program: In the Stay-Ahead Reading program, we help students, on a recurring basis, advance their reading comprehension, critical thinking, and vocabulary.  Students discuss in-class readings one-on-one with a teacher and then use their readings to practice critical thinking skills, for example evaluating inferences and identifying an author’s purpose.  We support students in growing their vocabulary to a college level, with special concentration on learning words in context and Latin and Greek roots.

                 Students also are required to read newspaper and magazine articles assigned by their teachers weekly. This aspect of our reading program not only introduces students to a variety of information but also increases students' confidence level in facing unfamiliar content.  In reading these articles, students observe and learn different styles of writing from professional writers.
