Xtreme Reading

The Xtreme Reading program provides students with an opportunity to become strong readers and stronger students. The mission of Xtreme Reading is to empower adolescent learners to reach their goals and to teach them the strategies, habits of learning, and knowledge required to thrive in the 21st century.

Xtreme Reading is an intensive, spiral curriculum that includes instruction in eight foundational reading and motivation strategies across a single school year. It entails explicit instruction in each strategy including guided practice, meaningful feedback, and independent practice in generalizing and combining strategies within and outside school.

Xtreme Reading is appropriate for students who exhibit:

  1. Poor reading fluency,
  2. Small sight vocabularies,
  3. Limited understanding of words and multiple word meanings,
  4. Limited background and conceptual knowledge,
  5. Few skills in using strategies that enhance understanding and remembering of oral and written language.
