Word Detectives Summer Reading Program at Northeastern University
The Word Detectives program integrates specialized reading instruction with daily, engaging enrichment activities.
Following registration, a review of each student’s records and a complete assessment are conducted to formulate a reading profile.
Scores from assessments are used to create specialized instructional groups of similar skill profiles.
During the half-day program, children participate in two instructional sessions designed to meet their specific learning needs.
All students receive one hour of small group instruction in the RAVE-O program to develop their fluency skills and one hour of instruction in an evidence-based explicit phonics program such as Wilson or Orton Gillingham.
Based on their learning profile, students may also receive explicit instruction in sight word recognition, reading comprehension, and/or support with written expression.
In between their instructional sessions, students enjoy a snack, activity break, and engaging enrichment activities like art projects, drumming lessons, and science experiments.
Families are asked to send in a completed application, accompanying teacher recommendation letter, and copies of educational assessments and/or Individualized Education plans from the last two years for consideration.
Tuition is due to guarantee placement in the program.
Applications are due Monday, April 15.
