Move Students Toward Reading Independence.

The PCI Reading Program is a scientifically research-based curriculum created specifically to teach students with developmental disabilities, autism, and significant learning disabilities to read. The reading program now comes in convenient, discounted Curriculum Sets with all the tools to turn nonreaders into successful readers.
PCI Reading Program Curriculum Set Level Three is designed to move students toward reading independence by using the words taught in Levels 1 and 2 as exemplars for teaching 23 onsets and 20 word families. Students learn the basics of word analysis, word building, and decoding in a uniquely scaffolded introduction to phonics that expands the success-based, controlled-vocabulary approach from Levels 1 and 2. In addition, Level 3 introduces students to the new genres of nonfiction and poetry and seamlessly integrates comprehension, writing, and fluency skills into the lesson cycle.
Level 3 serves as a bridge between the whole-word visual discrimination approach in Levels 1 and 2 and the decoding required of independent readers. To promote student success, instruction is arefully scaffolded to introduce students to the process of decoding by unveiling sounds that are embedded within the sight words they already know how to read. Students learn to examine known sight words, recognize common onsets and rimes, match phoneme sounds to letters, and decode unfamiliar words such as "bat" and "rake."
Students mature as both readers and writers, learning and applying higher-order comprehension skills as well as practicing fluency and writing in this level. Comprehension skills, including setting, main idea, and cause and effect, were selected based on an analysis of the types of questions on alternative state assessments. Unit tests include both decoding and comprehension questions, allowing teachers to monitor all aspects of reading progress. Writing opportunities are provided through the Write and Read Workbook, and fluency activities and assessments are integrated into each unit.
