Targeted Reading Intervention
The TRI Program
In this video Dr. Lynne Vernon-Feagans, Principal Investigator, discusses the Targeted Reading Intervention (TRI), its goals, and its successes.
The Targeted Reading Intervention (TRI) is a professional development intervention designed for elementary students who require additional reading instruction and their classroom teachers. Via remote webcam, trained coaches with reading expertise provide one-on-one, ongoing support to build capacity in reading instruction with teachers.
The TRI helps teachers build capacity by:
- Learning and using efficient instructional strategies for early reading development
- Developing skills in matching instruction to assessment
- Applying their learning for the benefit of targeted readers
The TRI has been endorsed by The Annie E. Casey Foundation Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development, The Rand Corporation Promising Practices Network, and included in the Best Evidence Encyclopedia.
