OCECD's Mentoring 4 Reading Achievement (M4RA) program is the coming together of parents, schools, organizations and volunteers to support reading achievement for all students who struggle in reading. M4RA is 1:1 reading mentoring for students reading below grade level. It involves 30 minute sessions for 4 times per week - before, during or after school. All public or private schools are eligible. There is no cost for 1 full day of Reading Mentoring Instruction for key staff, +1/2 day of Reading Mentoring Follow-up Instruction, 2 Resource Guide Books per school and ongoing professional development support.
Research demonstrates that students can make month-for-month reading level gains when mentored 3-4 times per week. Also students have increased self confidence which paves the way for reading success. The program content comes from www.readinga-z.com The M4RA trainers use Reading A-Zs "Tutoring and Mentoring Packs" when instructing schools for implementing the 1:1 reading mentoring program for their students. This program can benefit students who are/have: At Risk, Autism, Intellectual Disability/Cognitive Disability, English Language Learners (ELL), Emotional Disturbance, Multiple Disabilities, Specific Learning Disability and Speech or Language Impairments.
