What Is an SRA Reading Program?

Visited 22 times , 1 Visit today


SRA Reading Laboratory programs work by color-coding portions of reading materials according to the reading ability level required. It emphasizes the role of the student in directing his own learning, assessing his own skills as he works his way up through the levels. The age range runs from kindergarten age through to grade 12 and beyond.

Teachers’ handbooks guide planning, while students’ handbooks enable them to keep a record of their own learning. The main textbooks, Power Builders, contain readings grouped according to color-coded levels. Skill Builders contain comprehension, phonics, grammar and vocabulary instruction. Power Builders and Skill Builders are each accompanied by their own Key Cards for testing and scoring. Rate Builders help students develop speed in reading.
