Wilson Reading System®
The Wilson Reading System® (WRS) is a structured literacy program based on phonological-coding research and Orton-Gillingham principles. The WRS directly and systematically teaches the structure of the English language. Through the program, students learn fluent reading (decoding) and spelling (encoding) skills to the level of mastery. Students in second and third grades receive 60 minutes of WRS instruction daily and students in grades four and five receive 45 minutes of WRS instruction.
We are excited to announce that Provident Charter School Foundation has received Wilson® Accredited Training Partner status from Wilson Language Training! The designation will allow the foundation to expand its services to train and certify educators in the Wilson Reading System (WRS), a nationally recognized multisensory structured literacy program widely used to support students with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities.
Leveled Literacy Instruction
Leveled Literacy Instruction (LLI) is a supplementary literacy intervention focused on the explicit teaching of comprehension and meta cognitive skills designed to remediate comprehension of instructional level texts. Students receive instruction in systematically designed lessons that include a combination of reading, writing, phonics, and word study. Lessons across the seven systems progress from level A (beginning reading in kindergarten) through level Z (represents competencies at the middle and secondary school level) on the F&P Text Level Gradient™.
Heggerty Phonemic Awareness
What is Phonemic Awareness?
Phonemic Awareness (PA) is the ability to focus on and manipulate phonemes in spoken words.
What is the research on Phonemic Awareness?
The National Reading Panel (2000) concluded that PA instruction is effective in teaching children to attend to and manipulate speech sounds in words. The findings of the report revealed not only that PA can be taught, but also that PA instruction is effective when teaching children to read.
Sonday System 1®
The Sonday Reading System® is an explicit, systematic, and multisensory intervention that is designed to remediate students who are beginning to decode and encode. The intentional combination of multiple senses allows students to become more proficient at decoding and encoding.
