TRI Lesson Guide
TRI Lesson Guide with Videos
TRI Teachers work with their struggling readers intensively for about 15 minutes everyday, initially one-on-one and eventually in very small groups. TRI teachers use diagnostic, evidence-based reading strategies, which they refine each day to meet the needs of their struggling readers.
Re-Reading for Fluency
Interactive reading aloud by the child for the purpose of practicing fluency strategies.
Multi-sensory strategies for manipulating, saying, and writing words and individual sounds in words.
Guided Oral Reading
Interactive reading aloud to, with, or by the child that happens from the very first lesson and grows in time to be the most important element of the TRI.
Activities throughout the rest of the school day that increase the student's exposure to print at a more fine-tuned instructional match.
The TRI helps teachers:
- Acquire essential knowledge of early reading development and efficient instructional strategies
- Develop skills in matching instruction to informal assessment, and
- Apply their learning particularly for the benefit of struggling readers.
